Yes, it’s been a while since we brought out extensive coverage of the absolutely gorgeous Sony Xperia Z. We know you’ve been waiting to get your hands on it for some time now, but it sure looks like your wait is ending soon. Sony’s flagship device with its 5-inch screen, quad-core processor and dust and water resistant body has finally started selling in Japan. You can buy it through NTT DoCoMo and shipping has already started to consumers who had pre-ordered the phone.
The Xperia Z available in Japan has been specially customized by Sony, and features a One Seg Tuner, FeliCa NFC as well as an infrared port, in addition to unique software features. You can choose from three color options – white, black and purple.
For European customers too, the wait is soon coming to an end. From what we have heard, the phone should hit the European markets by the end of this month and become more widely available by March. For Sony Xperia Z fans in India though, unfortunately, we still don’t know how much longer until the phone arrives here. But if you know someone in Japan or Europe, maybe you can request them to pick one up for you.
