Sony Xperia Z priced in U.K. at £529 from Sony, only £449 from Three; delivery February 28th?
The eagerly awaited Sony Xperia Z, the star of CES 2013, has just been priced in the U.K. Sony is taking pre-orders for the phone at £529 ($837 USD) in black, white or purple. That price is after all applicable taxes. No launch date was listed (more on that coming up), but when the box is in your hot, sweaty hands, it will come with the EP881 Quick Charger, a USB media cable, EX300AP wired headset, internal battery and a screen protector. And yes, the Sony Xperia Z itself.

If you live in the U.K., you might also want to consider U.K. carrier Three. The mobile operator is asking for £449 ($710 USD) to pre-order the Sony Xperia Z for a PAYG plan. The plan will add an extra £10 ($16 USD) or £15 ($24 USD) per month. If you're looking to get tied up with a two-year deal, Three will take a down payment of £69 ($109 USD) and monthly payments starting at £34 ($54 USD) for unlimited data, 500 minutes of calls and 5,000 texts. Raise the monthly charge to £36 ($57 USD) and get bumped to 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes and 2,000 minutes of calls. Now here is where we revisit the subject of delivery. According to Three, the Sony Xperia Z has an estimated delivery date of February 28th. That date has been confirmed by Vodafone as the launch date for the Sony Xperia Z in the U.K. If you order the phone from Three, the carrier will toss in the High Definition Sony MDR-1R headphones worth £299 ($473USD) for the first 1,000 buyers.

So it looks like those in the U.K. will be getting the waterproof, dustproof Sony Xperia Z before the end of the month. And with the weather in the U.K., that waterproofing is going to be very much appreciated.
