Verizon and Sony announced the new Xperia Z3v a couple of weeks back, but far from being a true variant of the Japanese company's new flagship, the Z3v is more a re-tooled Xperia Z2. Putting that disappointment aside, the device is still very good and today Verizon has announced that the smartphone is available.Big Red has placed the handset on sale for $200 for a two year service plan or a hefty $600 if you want to own the device out right. The largest carrier in the US is also utilizing its Verizon Edge Program, giving consumers the chance to get the Xperia Z3v for $24.99 per month. The device is rocking a 5.2-inch HD display, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 32GB of storage space, a 3,200mAh battery, a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera and Android 4.4 KitKat. The Xperia Z3v is not the only Sony device Verizon is rolling out today as the company also revealed that the SmartWatch 3 is also available now. The network has decided to make it a contract free device, so you can pick it up for $249.99, which I think is pretty expensive. The SmartWatch 3 is however the only Android Wear device to rock a GPS sensor, so it is best poised to take advantage of the new Android Wear 4.42W update issued yesterday with GPS compatibility. source: Verizon
