I know that, but who also has it talking about those two Z and ZL, only ZL because Z doesn't have it.

"The difference is that the Xperia ZL is not waterproof, but does offer a thinner bezel for that nice edge-to-edge look. And the front-facing camera is found on the bottom of the phone instead of on top as you would find on most other models."

you misunderstood him.......by using the word "also" he just meant that except the differences listed above it ALSO has an IR blaster.....

I'm pretty sure Droid Bionic was 2 years ago.

Last years CES was 2012 not 2011. We are now in 2013 not 2012. So is that an error?
