Sony Xperia Z to launch in Europe on February 21st; Sweden's 3 takes pre-orders
Sweden's 3. The mobile operator is taking reservations now for the Sony Xperia Z which is LTE enabled and will come out of the box with Android 4.1. Including taxes, the phone will cost SEK 5,495 ($870.17 USD). The handset is also available for free with certain two year consumer or business plans.
The Sony Xperia Z is an IP57 certified device. The 5 indicates "limited dust ingress protection" while the 7 stands for "Protection against immersion between 15cm and 1m depth" for a duration of up to 30 minutes. Which means that the device will survive that drop into the toilet or the fall into the pool that usually is the end of most smartphones' lives.
