For folks who were hoping the Sony Xperia Z3 would come to a US carrier, we have some good news and bad news for you today. The good news is that it is coming to a US carrier. The bad news is only bad news if you aren't on Sprint, because that's the carrier who will be picking it up.

Of course, it's still possible some of the other carriers will pick it up too. In fact, in the past, both AT&T and T-Mobile have sold some of the Xperia line phones. It's good to see Sony devices finally spreading out, but we don't expect massive success in the US for Sony until they work out a deal with Verizon.

Incidentally, it is Softbank who is picking up the device, so it will also be sold in Japan through them as well.

Sony's official unveiling of the device will occur on September 3rd. That's the same day Samsung is unveiling the Galaxy Note 4.

Do you hope the Xperia Z3 will come to your carrier of choice?
