Sony Xperia Z1 carries a premium price tag, now available for pre-order across Europe
The Xperia Z1 is on track to keep the promise given by Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai to shorten the window between the announcement of a new device and its actual delivery to end users. Unveiled just yesterday, the device formerly known as the Honami (old habbits die hard) is already available for a pre-order on Sony's web store across 7 European countries. Express delivery is included for anybody who orders the handset by September 19.

As expected, different markets will get a somewhat different price. The cheapest price tag will land in Germany, with the Xperia Z1 costing the slightly discounted €649 ($856), whereas France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands can place a pre-order for €699 ($922). Turning away from the common currency, the price for a Sony Xperia Z1 in the United Kingdom is pegged at £599 ($936), while folks from Sweden will have to doll out 5,995kr ($903).

The color options include the traditional for Sony black, white and purple. Deliveries are expected to start at the end of September.

How about no. I like what Sony did here but for such a price - or a $100 less - the Note III is the best device you can get, otherwise for another $100 less the LG G2 or rather it's "knock-off", the Nexus 5 for another $200 off.

Nexus 5, Xiaomi Mi-3, Oppo N1 or Note III for phone
Nexus 7, iPad 5 or Note 10.1 2014 for tablet

agree on the mi3 and n1

oems are going for some ridiculous profit margins

anybody that pays more than 40% more than BOM and cost to manufacture for a device should be branded IDIOT and publicly ridiculed

Agreed. There is no way in hell that I would pay that for this phone.. Typical Sony price point..if they price this close to the note 3 pricewise they are going to get killed in sales

AS usual, price will dwcline sharply after 3 months. By that time, Xperia Z would be marketed as upper mid range with much discounted price.

These are euro prices that include a VAT. I don't know why it's necessary to go through this every single time. The US doesn't have VAT. Just changing the currency symbol to a $ is a more accurate conversion. That means in the US it should be somewhere between $599 and $699. Which is just about standard smartphone price range.

I hope you are right, at those prices I might buy but not what's posted.

And in Asian countries, it will be priced cheaper. Same as any other Sony Smartphone.

You know you have a rare phone when multiple people that work at Disney say " wow your phone takes amazing photos, I've seen the commercial but haven't seen anyone with the 1020"

I'm pretty sure it supports all the right frequencies, so unless you want a subsidized one, you should be able to still buy it outright somewhere and pop in your TMo SIM card.
