T-Mobile Ready Sony Xperia Z Ultra Passes Through The FCC, But Will They Carry It?

A quick reminder that passage through the FCC doesn’t guarantee a T-Mobile arrival, but the appearance of the Xperia Z Ultra with T-Mobile-ready HSPA+ and LTE has us thinking. The FCC filing for the 6.4″ smartphone/tablet/thing shows LTE bands 2,4,5 and 7 and 1700 HSPA+. With T-Mobile already selling the smaller sibling in the Xperia Z, it’s not unthinkable that T-Mobile could pick up another Sony device.

Sony Xperia Z Tablet Hits FCC Complete With T-Mobile Ready LTE Bands

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything on the topic of a new tablet for T-Mobile, but perhaps that’s all about to change. Enter the Sony Xperia Tablet Z which just passed through the FCC approval process complete with T-Mobile compatible LTE bands. Given that the tablet doesn’t have the requisite two bands (Band 4 and 17 are required for AT&T, just Band 4 for T-Mobile) for AT&T, the only deduction left … [read full article]
