Sony Xperia Z Ultra now available in the USA starting from $699
Sony's phablet extraordinaire – the Xperia Z Ultra – has now been made available for pre-order in the USA by electronics e-tailer giant Newegg. Pricing for the biggest phablet currently on the market starts from $699.99 for the C6802 model, or the 3G version, and goes up $30 to $729,99 for the C6806 version, which can take advantage of the USA's blazingly fast 4G LTE network.
Newegg's deal also includes shipping free of charge, though the device won't reach your doorsteps sooner than October 14, which feels frustratingly far away.

I wouldn't be so sure about that because at the moment Sony Xperia Z2 is still not official, at the moment there is only rumors and even no reliable information leaks.

Obvious comment of the day right here. The Z2 is a flagship that isn't going to be released until sometime next year. I think your comment is a safe bet.

Thats the problem of SONY these days, they release prototypes to crowd just at the time that we know that in 4-5months there will be another flagship - better one then the current 700USD flagship...
Z - in my country 4months ago...649EUR, now 440EUR
now Z1 listed for 649,-EUR - in 4 months 440 again...
Z2??? Will be better, made from real triluminous, unlike Z-Z1 untill they clear stock of old LCD panels...etc etc....no no SONY!

and the galaxy s5 is better than the s4. whats your point
15. ianbbaa (Posts: 196; Member since: 20 Mar 2013)
you are right...but read between the lines...SONY releases "flagship" every half year...samsung once a year... S4 is here as long as Z...but Z1 already here - buy it for the ridiculous price, in half year Z2...you loose pretty much money and resale value drops of Z1.
I quess in April there will be Z ULTRA 1 together with Z2 announced...

Yeah sorry Sony. I was ready to jump on board when it was released to the rest of the world a month before the states see it. But, I'm over it now and I've moved on. Too little too late.

The biggest mistake of Sony which is still going on is that it doesnt introduce its products to all American operators.
