Well, that was fast. Sony’s latest and greatest ever Android smartphone, the Xperia Z1, was formally introduced to the world a couple of weeks ago during the immediate pre-IFA days, and the 5-incher can already be scored… well, in U.K. at least.
Starting yesterday, September 17, online retailer Clove began offering the black SIM-free version of the Z1 in stock, with white units reportedly due “next week.” Though the Full HD, Snapdragon 800-toting handheld is by no means cheap, chances are that Clove’s stocks are fairly limited, so you might want to get your orders in as soon as possible to avoid being left hanging.
Plus, the £564 ($900) price tag includes a free SmartWatch 2 (regularly worth roughly £100), as well as exclusive content, including movies, PlayStation mobile games and a 60-day Sony Music Unlimited trial subscription, all valued at an extra £110.
So that’s a total of £210 worth of goodies that you’ll get completely free of charge, making this one heck of a sweet deal. That is, if you want and can afford the off-contract Xperia Z1. But do keep in mind that we’re expecting U.K.’s leading carriers to subsidize the Sony flagship over the next few weeks too.
Aside from its stunning display and fast and furious processor, the Z1 has a number of additional aces up its sleeve — the most important being a 20.7 MP rear-facing camera, 2 GB RAM, pre-loaded Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and massive 3,000 mAh battery. Bottom line, it’s sizzling hot!
