Sony Xperia ZL now available for pre-order in the U.S. directly from Sony
The Sony Xperia ZL is now being made available for pre-orders in the United States. We've already discussed many times how this is a top-shelf model that is overshadowed on Sony's own line-up by the Sony Xperia Z. Outside of the latter's ability to repeal water and dust, both phones are very similar and the Sony Xperia ZL's battery has a slightly larger capacity. With its smaller footprint, the Xperia ZL is the most compact 5 inch FHD smartphone on the market, which some of you might find refreshing in this era of larger and larger phones. Not that the model is a pipsqueak, mind you. It still offers a 5 inch BRAVIA Engine 2 display that makes up about 75% of the phone.

Sony is offering the unlocked version of the Sony Xperia ZL with HSPA connectivity for $719.99 while the same model with 4G LTE connectivity will run you $759.99. Sony relayed some interesting stats with its announcement this morning of the U.S. pre-order. In talking about the high-functionality of the power button, Sony computed that the average user touches the power button on his phone 76 times per day. How about that!

Sony says that the model will soon be available from other retailers in the states and there is a good chance that the price will be lower than Sony's price only because it is not considered good form for a manufacturer to compete with a retailer by offering a lower price. But if you want the Sony Xperia ZL now, and can't wait for another retailer to take pre-orders, go right ahead and click on the sourcelink. We should point out that the phone is available in red, white and black.
