    With free exclusive leather flip cover, Sony power bank, and 1 year internet data. Even though it’s the non-LTE version and the free internet data quota is questionable, I think it’s still an interesting deal.

  • i prefer earphone / headphone and docking when release not from or maybe nfc speaker.

  • ToharLalua

    Indiatimes shopping one of the official online partner for sony in India has a monthly discount coupon going on, on their site, which makes the effective preorder price to INR35091 or USD649. I have already preodered mine :D

  • Ben-Amie Lim

    ZL, Malaysia! Yay :)

  • Price is quite high for Indian Market…!

  • Price is quite high for Indian Market…!

  • spatch

    For those considering any of these Australian sites, please note that only model C6502 is for sale, and this Xperia ZL does not support any LTE bands. HSPA+ only. The LTE model is C6506.

  • ep

    good way promoting your store sir. way to go before kim henares starts filing cases against your online store. hope she doesn’t find you. we need less expensive sony products.

  • JG

    Where did you get this info? I’m very interested.

  • Quark Gluon

    Yeah. Erafone and SCM are clearing the Postel certification, we will see what they can offer pretty soon.

  • So Indonesia will get the C6602? I need that version for import to Canada because of the pentaband 3G

  • afzal

    Great news.. Malaysia got both device.. Thanks sony

  • LancerEX

    No warranty from Sony is a deal breaker for me. I spoke to an employee in a service center in SM Mall of Asia and they said that they wouldn’t accept phones bought from unauthorized resellers :(

  • LancerEX

    In the Philippines, CMK Cellphones (authorized reseller) also listed the Xperia ZL at P26,950 and the Tablet Z at P29,200. :D

  • Saint

    i just got email from two different online store in Indonesia, they confirm that it will be C6602, the non-LTE version..

  • Peter Sharpe

    for where?

  • that’s better.. i think indonesia is not ready for LTE ..with current techs, there’s lot things to do.. even in jakarta, you can find blank spot, no signal..

  • Malaysia

  • Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Vietnam

    Xperia P, S, T & V :))

    still need A, I, H, M, N to fill in :>

  • rend2688

    March 26 release on Telstra (Australia). Well, thats the dates from suppliers.

  • just wanted to add its here in pakistan aswell for 73000 rupees

  • Peter Sharpe

    oh ok thanks

  • Krit

    Hey Sony what about Thailand , not in your sight?

  • Quark Gluon

    Yes, C6602 confirmed.

  • Xionsky

    Hey! It’s not even released locally for both Superphone and Super Tablet.

  • Retail price of ZL (RM1899) at Sony Stores is cheaper compare to the retail price of Galaxy S3 (RM1999) at Samsung Stores.

    The ZL shall be in my pocket.

  • LancerEX

    They’re labelled “Coming Soon”! :P

  • Xionsky

    30k for a Tablet… Is it the LTE Version?

  • LancerEX

    Yup! Still cheaper than the Galaxy Note 10.1 which was priced at P32,990 when it was first released before :)

  • Tommi

    Finally I got my own preordered Z from teknikmagazinet (Finland) and it came with DK26 and with SRS-BTW5 :) 645€ was the total sum with shipping cost.

  • arenaflour

    it has already gone down to around 33k in other stores in india. it’s in the news.

  • How come CMK became an authorized reseller? Is there an official statement? All I know is that they sell phones with NTC sticker, compared to others unlike KS and DBG.

  • LancerEX

    2 weeks ago I called Sony Mobile PH’s hotline to ask for the nearest service center in our place. I bought my Xperia ray at CMK last year, and I asked if they’re an authorized re seller. They said yes. :)
