T-Mobile USA (TMUS) will be the exclusive U.S. seller of Sony's (SNE +2.8%) Xperia Z Android phone, which has posted strong international sales taken a big chunk of the high-end Japanese smartphone market. Together with a recent exclusive for Nokia's Lumia 925, the deal suggests T-Mobile is having more luck with smartphone OEMs following the MetroPCS merger. Also: Canaccord has launched coverage on T-Mobile with a Hold and $22 PT. The firm views T-Mobile as an attractive M&A target for the company that fails to acquire Sprint/Clearwire, but considers shares fully valued.
