Sony China Xperia Z1 event_2Sony Mobile has unveiled its Xperia line-up for Mainland China at a recent press event. Sony announced the “Xperia Z1 Colorful Edition” (M51w), which we know globally as the Xperia Z1 Compact. This particular model is exactly the same as the global model, but it is 3G only, so there is no LTE support. It will be available in all four colours (black, white, pink and lime) and launch in late February for CNY 3,999 ($661, €486, £403).

Other handsets announced includes the 4G/LTE Xperia Z1 (L39u) and 3G Xperia T2 Ultra dual (XM50h) for China Unicom. The 4G/LTE Xperia T2 Ultra (XM50t) was announced for China Mobile. Check out some hands-on pictures of the Xperia Z1 Compact below, including a comparison of the Xperia Z1 Compact’s IPS display versus the Xperia Z1.

    Apple and Sony worked together, for a iPhone Design, back in Time.

    Thats the reason why Apple don’t attacks Sony.
    If you use Google you find some Concept pix from Sony.

    Will an unlocked Z1 Compact work with T-Mobiles LTE here in the states? I’ve been thinking of ordering one from Negri Electronics.
