The day has finally arrived, well not the release date itself but the day we can tell you the release dates for the upcoming Xperia Z and Lumia 925. Along with that is the unknown T-Mobile 768 which is almost assuredly a prepaid device backed by Huawei, ZTE or some other manufacturer that releases under T-Mobile branding. As with all leaks, dates are subject to change but this looks pretty solid for all three handsets.
Not to be ignored is the July 14th “Major EIT Release” which is widely speculated to be the launch of T-Mobile’s UNcarrier Phase 2 plan. I’m still not clear if Phase 2 extends beyond the ‘Simple Choice with No Credit Check’ plan but until we know more, I’d speculate that’s the “Major Release” planned for July 14th.
As for pricing on the Lumia 925, I’m told that the device will sell for $99.99 down for well qualified customers. Total release price is $579, with 24 monthly payments of $20 each. No word on pricing for the Xperia Z at the time of this writing. Even without Sony pricing, release date for both high-profile launch on T-Mobile is better than nothing and we’ll take both devices with open arms, unknown and unconfirmed pricing and all.
