Sony Xperia Z1 Compact arrives in the US for $549.99

Perhaps a bit too late to the party, but Sony's Xperia Z1 Compact is finally available in the US. The 4.3-inch Smartphone was called by many as the true iPhone competitor that runs on Android OS. However, a high-price and limited release ensured that it never did become as successful as the potential it carried.

However, for those who still want it, the Xperia Z1 Compact can be bought directly from Sony's Online Store in the US. You get a SIM-free handset for $549.99, which is a bit on the higher side for a mid-range device.
