Sony's new Xperia Z3 flagship has been spreading itself in the United States, while Verizon also come out with their own variation. The device has so far been locked down to carriers, but the Japanese company has now made it available completely unlocked via its Online Store. That means you can now grab one of the best smartphones right now completely carrier free and can then choose whatever network you prefer to run it.Sony announced the Xperia Z3 back at IFA during the first week of September and while it is only an incremental update over the older Xperia Z3, it has won rave reviews. The Z3 is simply a very good overall package with good looks and a spec sheet that keeps it running with the current flagship trend. The handset gets a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD IPS screen, a 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 coupled with 3GB of RAM, 16GB of base storage with microSD card slot expansion. The device also has a 3,100 mAh juicer, a 20.7 megapixel rear camera lens, and to top it off it is water and dust proof with IP58/68 standard. To round off the package, the Xperia Z3 is running Android 4.4 KitKat, but Sony has already confirmed that the handset is in line to get Android 5.0 Lollipop in the coming months. If you are interested in picking up the Sony Xperia Z3 completely unlocked you can grab it on the company's Online Store for a hefty $679.99. The smartphone is available in silver green, white, copper, or black.
