Sony Xperia Z Ultra coming September 13 in the UK
In what can best be described as the next chapter of the “phablet wars” the one to watch for is Sony's awe-inspiring Xperia Z Ultra. The mammoth 6.44-inch 1080p (the world's thinnest, at that) has caused more than a handful of heads to turn its way, and we sure are anxious to get our geeky hands on it.

The more observant of you may remember that the general release date was set for somewhere in Q3. Of course, as is the nature of apprehension, nothing spells 'party' better than a concrete date, and we may now have one. Of course, this may change, but this is likely as official as it's gonna get before we hear it spelled out by the folks behind Sony themselves.

Amazon lists the Xperia Z Ultra with a September 13 release date

Amazon lists the Xperia Z Ultra with a September 13 release date

Health warnings aside, the XPERIA Blog rung the bell yesterday, having spotted listings of the upcoming hybrid on several UK-centric e-tailers, including Amazon, Clove and Handtec with an expected release date of September 13. If this is correct, Samsung's Galaxy Note 3 will have just days on the giant to come out of Japan, which means the two most anticipated phablets, so far, will have their destinies tied together from the start.

Back to the listings at hand – as you can see, apart from using the Sony Xperia Z as a placeholder image, the pricing of the handset itself is all over the place. XPERIA Blog notes that this is likely to be adjusted (in the case of Amazon) and expect a price more in the $910 (£600) department.

As always, bear in mind that this is not an official confirmation and could change.

Seriously, how old r u ?

Anyways, landline are suppose to be stationary that's why size was never a concern, all people required was durability & battery! Not to mention they were made ages ago and people were fond of those big physical keys.

Also, there a difference of nearly only half an inch between this and Nexus 7 and Nexus is called 'tablet'. Even Galaxy Note series at 5.5 inch is called 'phablet'. Need more proof ?!

Stop being a fanboy for once and you'll realize what wonders common sense can do !

That's a big let down, For many people Including me I use the led light as flashlight all the time. How you going to take picture at night with no flash, I know is not top quality but it helps alot. The phone specs are awesome, but sony always manage to screw sh!t up.

no no bro.. its no where near enough,believe me! u'll c once its out
and the software power saver will not make much of difference
For battery i ll say.. even the NOTE II has bigger battery,and its only 5.x inch and has 720p display.. n the processor is also decent
this has 6.4 inch and above that 1080p resolution.. and
s800 quadcore with 2.2ghz clocked and adreno 320! BOOM!
it ll zap that measly 3050 mAh battery in No time.
Wait for the real life results from people on battery.. u'll get it :)

Sony has thrown everything but the kitchen sink at android and they still can't make a dent in Samsung's market share. This is exactly what Nokia would have experienced had it chosen android over WP.

not really. nokia was once on top. sony never was on top of the mobile phone competition. nokia still has some good number of followers who can help them market their convincing products (if they have any).

if the lumia 1020 were an android phone, it could surely attract buyers. they would have not been limited to 2 cores. they could've used 1080p displays. nokia could have been more competitive.

elop is just too fixated on microsoft.
