Xperia Z4 Tablet on pre-order in Europe; BKB50 Keyboard bundled in select markets

by XB on 2nd March 2015

in Sony Tablet, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series


Xperia Z4 Tablet Pre-order_2Pre-orders for Sony’s new Xperia Z4 Tablet have now commenced, well at least if you live in Europe. The Sony Mobile Store has placed the tablet on pre-order revealing pricing across a number of markets. In the UK, the Wi-Fi version will cost £499 rising to £579 for the LTE model. Whilst the pricing may seem steep, Sony is including the Bluetooth Keyboard BKB50 within this price too. We have no idea if this is a limited time promotion or whether this is how Sony plans to sell the tablet in the UK.

Only two other regions are including the bundled keyboard. In France, only the Wi-Fi version is available at a cost of €649. In Netherlands, only the LTE version is available costing €749. The BKB50 keyboard is currently not being bundled in any other region, you can only pre-order the standalone tablet. For full European pricing details check out the list below. Sony says that deliveries are expected to commence on 27 May 2015.

Thanks Ramon!

    Would love to know if BKB50 keyboard is compatible with tablet Z or Z2. If not ,this is a HUGE reason Sony is failing in the market.

  • hmmm

    ,PLEASE SONY,explain us how does Snapdrogon 810 DOES NOT HEAT up on htc,lg and others!PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE,DO THIS FOR US!!!!!

  • Raj Singh

    Why not global?!
    Man, I can’t rationalize their decision not to have this as a global roll out…
    Don’t they learn anything from the competition?

  • Omarion07

    Sony priced their E4, E4g, and M4 phones really good and really competitively, but they to mess up the pricing of the Z4 tablet. What’s even worse is that they’re charging 180 euros for the cheap plasticy Bluetooth keyboard. Sony does some good stuff and when people think they’re back on the right track, Sony fucks up again!

  • Raj Singh

    Sony is really good at making hardware — I applaud their engineers and designers — but they have extremely weak business acumen on all fronts.

  • Raj Singh

    Sony’s management team doesn’t know how to sell products…

  • Omarion07

    Whoever’s in charge of Sales and marketing at Sony is really messed up in the head. They think that even when they price their products ridiculously people are going to buy just because it has the Sony logo on them. They’re charging 1200$ for a walkman device, 160$ for an SD card, 180-200$ for a bluetooth keyboard, and now 659 euros for the LTE tablet, while the company is bleeding money. Wake up Sony.. It’s not the 80s and 90s any more!!!

  • Omarion07

    Totally bro!

  • Raj Singh

    Can anyone recall a decent Xperia promo or commercial? And this from a company that has a film studio in Hollywood…
    I just shake my head.

    Not really! Well in fairness, they said in a leaked email that they’re going to show the Z4 in the new Bond film. But that was it.

  • Omarion07

    Man the specs are perfect but the pricing is horrible!

  • Raj Singh

    They’ve been doing that for years but it seems forced and they suck at that, too! They used Vaio and Xperia products in previous Bond films. All forgettable product placements. Loved Sony’s Vaio Z series. They also did it with 21 Jump Street and a few others. They sucked at it then, too. And Daniel Craig wants 5 million to do a useless promo that will be forgotten.
    I’m cynical and have no faith in their ability to market and sell these devices effectively.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    I guess we folks in the states aren’t important enough

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Are you kidding me? Only LG is heating up. Have you not watched PocketNow’s review of the G Flex 2. LG flopped and perpetuated the overheating issues.

  • Omarion07

    I think they need new bloods in their marketing/Sales department, preferably American as the Japanese don’t seem to be great at marketing. They should also learn from the PS4 amazing success as it delivered better specs and lower price than competitors. But guess who’s in charge of marketing the PS4.. Sony entertainment America. The american divisions of Sony seams to be more successful and are better at marketing compared to the Japanese divisions.

    browser backs?

  • Omarion07

    I think it’ll be released in the states at some stage .. probably around the same time as Europe!

    This is what Kazuo Hirai said regarding the latest rumors of selling the mobile division “We have to make changes to how we manage our smartphone business. But one thing does not change – mobile remains an important part of the Sony group. Smartphones, tablets, smarter are firmly rooted in our daily lives. They’re the last thing we see when we go to bed and the first thing we see when we wake up in the morning.” http://www.couriermail.com.au/business/breaking-news/sony-eyes-tablet-turnaround-with-flashy-xperia-z4/story-fnn9c0gx-1227245648222

    Off-topic, but I mentioned this earlier, XB ! Whenever I happen to click on any user posted link or even ads in Chrome on your website, it leaves xperiablog & directs to that site. Very annoying! The links are supposed to open on a different tab/window. It doesn’t happen on any other site. Please fix this!

    hmmm you’re wrong, also yo u can just ctr+cllick or click the wheelmouse

  • Snorky112

    50€ cheaper than the ipad

  • RealityCheck2015

    It would of been better at £399(Wi-Fi version) & £449 (LTE model) Oh well.

  • Omarion07

    Man you can’t compare Sony to the market leader Apple that can dictate almost everything in consumer electronics. And even if Apple priced a product insanely they can still get away with it. The same doesn’t apply to Sony.

  • User2080

    they’re stuck with the thought that they are still the once famous and premium company they were some decades ago

  • Omarion07

    I’ve noticed that the tablet the girl’s holding still has the walkman application!!!!

  • Xadiq

    Is the keyboard waterproof? Just in case I need to write a 500-page novel underwater on the Z4 Tablet wearing scuba gear.

    That cheap plasticy BT keyboard can last up to an entire month on a single charge. That’s too impressive of an efficient battery, even on the Z4 tablet.

    Their marketing team just needs to be changed to get their info out there.

  • GregLu

    Sorry but the pricing for the M4 is not good at all, 300 EUR for that isn’t cheap considering that for 60-70 EUR more you can have the Z3 Compact … The M4 should have been at max 250 EUR. It seems well built but that’s it.

  • jxPerience

    really? any supporting link?

  • jxPerience

    no its not, and it does’t need to be.

  • jxPerience

    Good news for us… but they must show they are different than others. Sony used android os but they have the power to show difference..

  • jxPerience

    because apple offering the tablet free with plan. unlike sony you need to pay in full to touch the premium xperia tab. So people would grab it for FREE instead of paying FULL right?

  • jxPerience

    its a good price, i dont know what’s wrong with you. if you can’t afford to buy Sony, refrain from dreaming of having one.

  • El_Carnicero

    Problem in the States is that everything gets funneled through your telcos… And that causes all the delays because they want to do their own testing, add their bloatware, etc.

  • El_Carnicero

    In english…?

  • El_Carnicero

    In Singapore, the Z2 was also offered free with telco plans.

    So, your point is invalid.

  • El_Carnicero
  • El_Carnicero

    Because some countries simply DO NOT SELL Sony products well. If Sony makes a profit in 50 countries but loses money and has stagnant inventory in 100, why then still ship to those 100?

    Basic business sense…. Why supply when there is no demand…

  • El_Carnicero

    The Z2 already has a Bluetooth keyboard cover. Also, it is NOT a “huge” reason they are failing. People are not buying their stuff because of ZERO MARKETING. Most people buying a tablet will NEVER buy a keyboard for it.

  • El_Carnicero

    That’s RRP… Street price is a lot lower, and most telcos give it for free with plans.

  • jep

    not a fan of apple but yes,they are in their league.

  • Timel

    Galaxy S6 edge is better

    so wat u gona do at the edge of the phone?

    Pre orders for something that’ll be going on sale in June?

  • rob

    I guess your right. But it looks like crap!

  • John Ward

    I think you’ll find that most of the marketing is done by the old Ericsson team in Europe

  • John Ward

    I see the sense of humour is alive and well…

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Except this is pre-order straight from Sony not any carrier

  • P9

    see the browser app comes back…

  • Raj Singh

    America and Canada should be included at launch since they fully intend to sell in those markets anyway…

  • GregLu

    Hahaha, your comment is nice. BTW, I own a Z3 Compact and also a Z3 (And some others like G3 because all is not Sony) so don’t worry about me about that.

    I like Sony, but they need to be realistic, It’s like HTC and their fucking high price on the M9 or even on the M8s, without any promotion at all.

    Given the specs and so on I keep on my position : The M4 should not be selled at more than 250 EUR. For a reminder, the M & M2 were launch at 249 EUR both and it was already a high price considering the hardware that is just “fine”. At 300 EUR you have nearly a Z3 Compact … Just think about that.

  • cyun84

    I already have the Xperia Z2 tablet and the magnetic charging dock/bluetooth speaker. At this price, the Surface Pro 3 is looking much more appealing…

    I like this concept for business but 10.1″ is a little too small. Hope in the future, Sony will consider 13.3″ and sell with a keyboard.
