Sony Xperia ZL is Canada bound says tweet from Sony Canada
A tweet direct from Sony Canada confirms that the Sony Xperia ZL will be launched in Canada sometime this year. At this stage, all of those important things like pricing and availability date are unknown. We are also not sure of the device will launch via a carrier or come to market unlocked.

What we do know is that the phone will have a 5 inch 1080 x 1920 screen and a 441ppi pixel density. Under the hood is the quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor with the Adreno 320 GPU working on the graphics.  2GB of RAM is on board and the 16GB of internal storage can be expanded with the 64GB capacity microSD slot. The rear facing 13MP camera captures video in 1080p while the 2MP camera up front takes self-portraits and supports video chats. Android 4.1.2 is installed out of the box.

The Sony Xperia ZL is similar to the device that seemed to capture most of the buzz at CES this year, the Sony Xperia Z. 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.

Switching back to the Sony Xperia Z for a second, let's hope it fares better than the handset that received the most attention at last year's CES. Can you remember which phone that was? The Motorola DROID BIONIC.
