in Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

Xperia ZL CanadaThe Sony Xperia ZL will be the main Sony flagship handset to launch in Canada, with no confirmed news of an Xperia Z release. The Xperia ZL has just hit pre-order on the official Sony Store website. This is for an off-contract phone (locked to Rogers) and will cost C$674.99, somewhat cheaper than the US cost we saw earlier. The listing points to a 2 April release date. The handset is expected to land on all of the major Canadian carriers including Bell, Mobilicity, MTS, Rogers, Videotron and WIND Mobile in early April.

    so does that mean we will see it soon in the states?i dunno i’m still torn on whether i should get the Z or ZL. i prefer the Z design but like the fact that the Zl is smaller, has a dedicated camera button. hmmmm Decisions decisions decisions

  • kiikooo

    I want white :(. Also does locked to rogers mean that when Sony releases updates it’ll go through Rogers first? because i will just buy it from the US unlocked if so.

  • I would suggest go with ZL because of it’s dedicated camera button and its infrared blaster. I love the Z but the fact you are not supposed to use it in Sea,pool water make me scare a little. I have Xperia V but I don’t dare trying its Water resisting feature in other than clean drinking water lol
    ZL will not get updated as fast as the Z though

    So once again they bring only ONE of the flagships and in ONE colour option… Frickin’ Canadian market.

    Would prefer a white one. ZL is my preference over the Z (IR, smaller size, camera button, lack of irritating flaps and smudge free). Just have to see what Bell wants for a 3-year contract ($150??). The only thing holding me back is switching off a physcial keyboard – yes I’m a BB (Torch) user. I absolutely hate typing on my tablet. Arghhh!

    I don’t like the fact that it has an ir blaster. But it has that cool led notification light at the bottom. But the z has that elegant look and water resistance and the camera button is not a deal breaker I’m sure there is an app that will let you use one of the volume rockers as a shutter. the z looks better in black but i like the red of the zl. Why couldn’t Sony mash them together and give me the best way of both worlds?

  • That is exactly what it means, spend a few extra dollars and get the unlocked version.

  • They just did that with the XSP, took them a year to do it so you have your benchmark for your request, lol.

  • solidpig

    It’s a brilliant device and all… but I’m not going back to signing contracts again and taking a locked phone. Not with those 3 year Bell and Rogers plans.
    But Mobilicity and Wind? Maybe.
