T-Mobile announced today that it would begin selling the Sony Xperia Z3 later this month. The Z3 will be available for $26.25 per month for 24 months on T-Mobile's installment plan, with presales starting on October 15th. General online and instore availability will begin on October 29th.

T-Mobile's announcement follows Sony and Verizon's announcements last week for the Z3v, a variation of the Z3 for Verizon's network. The Z3 is the most impressive smartphone Sony has ever released, with a 5.2-inch, 1080p display, 20.7-megapixel camera, and waterproof construction. It is also compatible with Sony's PS4 remote play, which lets you play your PS4 games on your smartphone. If you're in the US and have your heart set on the Z3's little brother, the Z3 Compact, the only option to purchase it is direct from Sony at a price of $529.99 unlocked. Hopefully an American carrier will pick up the Z3 Compact as we found it superior to the Z3 in many ways, but there hasn't been any news to share on that front.

Update, October 13th, 10:30AM ET: This article has been updated to note that the Z3 Compact can be purchased direct from Sony in the US.
