Sony Xperia Z – UK Release Date and Price

The handset in question has been unveiled during CES and although we were not given an exact release date at that time, it’s been pretty much a no-brainer that the gadget should hit the shelves sometime during Q1 2013. Well, if you happen to live in the UK you should know the Xperia Z is available for pre-order via Three, O2, Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U.

Also, both the retailers and carriers are also giving you the chance to earn a set of Sony MDR-1R Prestige headphones worth £300, assuming that you’re among the first 1,000 people to pre-order the handset.

As for the device itself, Three UK is offering the Xperia Z (in black and white) at the price of £69 up-front as long as you’re willing to pay £34 a month for the next two-years. The respective plan will offer you unlimited data, 500 minutes and 5,000 texts. The gadget is also sold on Pay As You Go, and this way, the Xperia Z will set you back £449.99 instead.


O2 retails the black and purple Xperia Z on its network alongside a wide range of tariffs, the most affordable one setting you back £47 a month on a 2-year agreement. With this particular plan you’ll get your smartphone for free and you’ll benefit from 1 GB of data, 1,200 minutes of voice and unlimited text messages.

Both Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U are offering the black and white Xperia Zs. However, prices differ from one carrier/contract to another so hit those links for more details.

The pre-order timeframe will last until February 28, after which the smartphone will hit the UK market in full force on that very same date. Any takers?
