First 1000 Xperia Z buyers at various UK retailers to get Sony's premium MDR-1R cans

To celebrate the launch of the Xperia Z flagship in the UK, Sony is running a drool-worthy promotion at Phones 4U, Carphone Warehouse, Three, O2 and Vodafone. The first 1000 customers who order the phone from these places are getting Sony's MDR-1R Prestige cans - about two hundred British pounds in value on Amazon, and three hundred if you ask Sony...

Give-aways to spur demand and what-not are nice, but how about a firm release date for U.S. sales? And, which carriers will be on-board for the release? I really hope it is more than AT&T and T-Mo in the U.S.

I don't know why Sony don't want to expand market to US... Probably don't want to be bullied by carrier I think...

Well, they will have no one to blame but themselves if the Z isn't a sales success. It is well-spec'd. But if they limit themselves to AT&T and T-Mo, they are basically cutting out half of the U.S. market. They should ask the folks at Nokia how well that strategy worked for them on the L920.

Sony following the footstep of HTC with Dr Dre.... If your device is good enough then you don't need this kind of promotion stuffs.... until you are giving it for your loyal customers for being your customers ...... That's sweet :) .. if not then with this your sales can't reach the sky high ..

don't say bullsh*ts please. this a strategy that every company must have. don't you see samsung giving free note 2 cases in US. so this is a way to grab more customers.

Dont forget the free wireless charging stations. Its just stuff to sweeten the deal a bit.

Sony knows that it will be popular, if they market it right it will be the next Galaxy s3.

hahahahaha... very funny...sounded like you only really need the headphones but not the phone itself.
send the phone my way and keep the headphones, if you end up buying one, ok?

Theres better headphones that cost much less than these lol. Its okay if they are free but I would never buy Sonys headphones if I had the choice of all the other companies.
