We’re only days away from Sony Xperia Z’s global rollout, so the 5-inch Full HD super-phone is all the rage in the Android décor these days. However, Sony has a few loose ends from the recent past that need tying up, including a delayed Xperia V launch in several European countries.

The 4.3-incher is out in Asia, but also in Germany, Sweden or Russia ever since December 2012. Meanwhile, Sony’s local French branch has initially pushed back the release for January this year and now it’s pushing it even further, until March.

The thing is, after all this time, we don’t know if people are still interested in the handheld. Don’t get us wrong, the fellow is not exactly an entry-level device, but it’s not a high-ender… anymore. It packs a 1.5 GHz dual-core S4 Krait CPU, 1 GB of RAM, a 13 MP camera, 8 GB of internal memory and a 1,750 mAh battery.

The display boasts a 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution, while the on-board OS is most likely going to be Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in France. The rumored starting price is of around €500, which sounds a bit steep. Or does it, what do you guys think?
