More Nations Chime-In With Sony Xperia Z Pricing, And It’s (Unsurprisingly) Expensive


Sony really seems like it’s trying to step up its game with the Xperia Z (and ZL), but with hardware like a 1080p display and advanced thirteen-megapixel Exmor RS camera sensor, you’d better believe that this handset isn’t going to come cheap. Just what will you end up paying for Sony’s flagship? We saw some pre-order pricing from a UK retailer last week, and today we hear some new figures from retailers in other nations, as well as from Sony itself.

Straight from the horse’s mouth, Sony’s Australian outfit reports that the Xperia Z will be available direct from the company for what works out to about $790. Gear in Australia often costs a bit more than you’d see in other nations, so considering the UK pricing came to around $710, that’s actually not too bad.

Unfortunately, the situation could be even more expensive elsewhere, and the Xperia Z is listed in Finland for nearly $990. Sure, prices will likely start dropping once the handset finally arrives, but you early adopters intending to buy the phone out-of-pocket had better start saving up now.
