The Sony Xperia Z1 aka the Honami is the device many have been waiting for. It will get officially unveiled tomorrow at IFA 2013, but just ahead of the announcement another press image of the device has surfaced.

Better marketing would be to make it available to everyone on all carriers internationally. Otherwise it's dead to me if it's not on Verizon. The Note 3 already has a head start in this department.
Just look at the HTC One; 6 months late to the party when it finally came to Verizon.

Distribution is covered under marketing, so technically it is still marketing.

The four "P's of Marketing" are "Product, Promotion, Price, and Place." Distribution is simply another word for "Place."

A Xperia Z1 and a Smartwatch 2 = Best of both worlds.
If this is available in my country, I will pre-order it right away!

4K video recording... No like it matters, 4K tvs are way too expensive, and you wont see better quality in the 1080p screen. kind of ehh about the aperture why not f/2.0

Hopefully this phone is good. Just had a call an hour ago from my friend who was thinking of getting the z. I screamed nooooooooo to her lol wait cause they are releasing the upgrade too it soon plus when I told her about the 20mp camera she got really excited. So I hope the camera is as good as it .the phone isn't for me but she likes the z design so this should be a great phone from her.
