European Xperia Z sales kick off; French citizens can buy the handset right now

by XB on 18/02/2013

in Xperia Z and Xperia ZL


It begins. The Sony Xperia Z is in stock and available to order for those in France. The official Sony Mobile France webstore has both black and white variants of the handset in stock for €649. The purple version is listed out of stock, this is as SFR has exclusivity on the purple variant. We have not noticed it appear elsewhere across Europe so far, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for you.

    I have a question to anyone who already got the handset already.
    In the previous post, it was mentioned that you may not be able to take pictures underwater, question is, if you are allowed to replay the recorded video (either under water or on the surface) and take snapshots like the one in HTC? Thanks!

    Sony Mobile US just sent out emails for folks in Unites states who pre registered to get news. They say “Stay tuned for more as we keep you up to date with more information in the run up to pre-order and the on-sale date. “

    today it was launched ! check website !

  • roeshak

    It’s like the manufacturers are playing cat and mouse.
    First Sony go in early to give itself some breathing space, then HTC and Samsung bring forward their launch dates to prevent the Z having a free month of unchallenged sales.
    Now Sony’s slowly pushing back its own date.
    it’s like they’re all scared of each other. Funny to watch indeed

    That’s stupid, Abu Dhabi has a European LTE frequency that matches what is released in Europe… why no LTE?

  • blackout-blecken

    I thought that event was ‘n dubai not abu dhabi?

  • http://twitter.com/DINOzur Dino

    What I’m actually thinking is after you press the record and go underwater, then go back to surface after recording the video, can you replay the video itself and take a snapshot of that video and save it as an image? It’s possible on my friend’s HTC

  • kenw

    Looks like the xperia V is a no go then

  • http://www.facebook.com/abdullah.robben Abdullah Robben

    i dont know actually but that makes me sad i am now thinking in xperia zl xperia zl will support LTE
    and i really want to buy an LTE smartphone
    water resistance vs LTE
    what do you prefer ?

    It’s bored only read about Xperia Z but I prefer that. I don’t want to read about new phones that devalues my actual phone.

    The problem is you can’t press the camera button while underwater which makes taking still image while rolling a video impossible.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Lahirurd Lahiru Dias

    Phone is now out of stock & it’s 4G version.

    which product from HTC that can take still image, while underwater? i don’t know much about HTC.. ah yes i forgot it’s underwater..my mistake..

  • http://www.facebook.com/abdullah.robben Abdullah Robben

    i hope so

  • M Usman

    HTC one just got revealed… Another dilemma

  • DStyle

    Just envy ppl in Euro. Not because Z is launching this month but they have more than 1 color to choose from. In NZ, I heard Sony or Vodafone just bring in BLACK. Very disappointed.

  • http://twitter.com/DINOzur Dino

    Hi Billy, im not after the underwater. Im talking about HTC OneX that can take still images on a video that is being played (not being recorded.)

  • http://www.facebook.com/billythefretes Billy de Fretes

    oh, i see dino..my iphone 4 can do that. i just test it my self after reading your post by using assistive touch menu . after take screen shot of a video, the video itself will pause after i click on screenshot options. i hope this is what you mean :)
