UK retailer Handtec is reporting that Sony has changed its mind about selling the SIM free version of the Xperia T2 Ultra. At this stage, we don’t know whether this also applies to planned carrier versions of the device.
We know on the date of the Xperia T2 Ultra announcement that Sony was indeed planning to sell the Xperia T2 Ultra in the UK, but perhaps the company wanted to focus on a select number of handsets in the market.
Update: Another UK retailer, Clove, has removed the Xperia T2 Ultra for sale, which pretty much confirms that it won’t be coming to the UK.
