Sony's huge Xperia Z Ultra comes with a small companion: SBH52 Bluetooth Handset
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is real and it has just gone official - a mind-boggling 6.44-inch smartphone, it is as big as it gets. One question remains, though, and it is about how practical it is to use such a display for phone calls? Sony obviously thought about this and is bringing a very sleek little accessory for that, the SBH52, a dynamic Smart Bluetooth Handset.

The SBH52 has got a small OLED screen allowing you to read your call log and text messages, and it also double as a music headset that also supports FM radio with RDS. It’s NFC capable so pairing happens with a single touch to the Xperia Z Ultra.

Moreover, the miniature handset is also protected against the elements. Overall, it seems like a great compact companion to the super-large Z Ultra, don’t you think?

Just like the advertisement. I can see women carrying the device in purse but portability of this device is a big issue for men.

Having lived in the US, Europe and Asia, I will say that more and more men outside of the US have either a backpack, messenger bag or "man purse" these days. I think Sony is thinking ahead and outside of just the US market with this device and form factor.

I agree that most men in other countries are carrying around some type of bag, but I also think there are more and more people in the US that are starting to carry around bags as well. I see a lot of people carrying around backpacks, especially in the larger cities. I would like to see if they try to offer this device in the US to see how many people would go for it. I think it would be somewhat of a surprise as to how many devices they would sell. Remember, manufacturers never thought the original Galaxy Note would sell that much and that was back when people were use to seeing on average 4.3 inch screen devices (there was the occasional 4.5-4.7 inch screens but they were on more mid-tier devices that didn't sell that many).

Nice that they have come with this bundle, because it may be annoying to put out ZU from your pocket since it is too big... Now just a click! :D

I'm already applying a similar setup with my Note II and a Jabra Street II Stereo Bluetooth headset... sure I can't hold it like a mini phone but why would you , a mini phone looks as dorky as a mini tablet against your ear.

I even use the Street as a remote control as when the phones is used as an audio source on an amp.

Its rather uninspiring when its not the kind of bluetooth device that clips to your ear.

Tablets and Phablets should come with bluetooth headphones in the box.

One is ridiculously big and another is ridiculously small (even for girls's small hands)... I like the HTC one's Korean mini BT phone better in terms of size and usability...
