Sony did not give a reason for the delay, although earlier rumors suggested that the Japanese manufacturer was having trouble with one of its suppliers. A member of the Esato forum boards had posted earlier in March that the Sony Xperia Z2 would be delayed to late April/early May.
U.K. phone retailer Clove says that it will continue to take pre-orders for the phone, and that those who previously reserved a unit will not lose their place on line. Additionally, it will continue to offer the free wireless speaker & noise-cancelling headphones bundle. That deal was supposed to end by the end of April. Clove says that as long as Sony continues to offer the bundle, it will pass it along to those who pre-order the Xperia Z2.
