Xperia Z1

The Sony Xperia Z1 comes in not only standard white and black versions, but also purple — a color that's become a staple for Sony smartphones over the past year. Like its monochrome siblings, the purple Sony Xperia Z1 features a glass-backed construction with a metal central band. And while the extra splash of color is easy to miss from the front, the back and sides of the phone take on a new, vivid appearance in purple.

Check past the break for more shots of the purple Sony Xperia Z1 from IFA 2013.

armando_rod says:

Sony doesnt have CDMA phones, unlikely this would be on Verizon or Sprint.

InfinitiGuy says:

Isn't CDMA dead in the US yet?

Erm, CDMA won. If you use 3G or 3.5G on a GSM phone, you're most likely using CDMA. The only part of GSM which still uses the original awful TDMA is the voice channel. The reason GSM phones can do voice and data simultaneously is because they have a TDMA voice radio, and a CDMA data radio. CDMA phones use one radio for both, so can only do one at a time.

If it weren't for CDMA, GSM would've been stuck at about 50-100 kbps for data until 4G came out. It's only recently that processors have gotten powerful enough to decode the OFDMA signals used in LTE without draining the battery in 30 minutes. Without Verizon and Sprint choosing CDMA in the US and proving the technology, data speeds over global cellular networks would be several years behind where they are now, because the GSM consortium made a short-sighted decision to base their standard on TDMA.

It could make it's way to VZW, but then again when was the last time we saw a Sony smartphone on VZW?

Sony needs to do away with the onscreen buttons and place them on that big ass bottom bezel.

anekin007 says:

This is what killed it for me also. While other companies are shrinking bezel space Sony manage to keep a huge bezel and on top of that the on screen buttons. It just makes the phone look outdated.

plunder says:

Why glass on BOTH sides. It seems congenitally stupid.
Many major design teams need a group mind enema.
