Sony’s new flagship smartphone is already available for pre-order in various European markets from either the Sony online store or local carriers and retailers, with some UK offers including free content but also a free Smartwatch 2 or a free QX lens.
Here are the official prices of the Xperia Z1, when ordering it directly from Sony in various markets:
However, buyers in the UK should be aware of the other Xperia Z1 offers in the region – they’re not necessarily better, because they’re on contract, but they’re certainly interesting.
For example, Carphone Warehouse has the device available for £69 when purchased with contracts of £33 per month, and each pre-order comes with a free QX lens (the Cybershot QX10 which retails for £150) and content worth £245 (that’s £65 worth of “content including top 5 movies, an exclusive movie access pass, and 60 days of free music streaming”).
Then again, the Xperia Z1 already has a great camera so getting a free QX lens for it may not be that interesting.
In that case, you should check out EE’s Xperia Z1 pre-order offer. The carrier will offer a free Sony Smartwatch 2 (retails for £149) with every Xperia Z1 pre-order, just as some rumors said it would happen (at least in certain markets). The downside is that you’ll have to sign up for a new two-year contract with EE. The price of handset varies depending on monthly charge and operator (Orange or T-Mobile).
That said, launch dates for the Xperia Z1 aren’t available at this time although Sony does say that deliveries will start by the end of the month.

Z1, note 3, Nexus 5, Fonepad Note 6 (if it has US compatibility) …. decisions decisions .. hmmmm…
Fonepad will strugle with Android updates again.
Note 3 has just wrong pricing.
Z1 – well – we ll see how it comes.
I will stuck with Nexuses – has both Nexus 4 and S4 (octa) but – S4 just mostly stays at home while Nexus is like friend to me(those flashaholics will probably understand me)
I got GN3 #1, fonepad – if us, then z1 and nexus kind of toss up
If price in Europe is over 900 – I just don`t see those “innovation” that can cost that much – nothing special over Z1 or even Z ultra (no OIS – just bigger S4 with pen) well unless that leather panel is woth 300
Dnt believe the GN3 is over priced. $299 same as last yr. but more internal memory standard, ram, all other specs bumped and added software feat for same price .. I’ll take that.
I actually do like the Z ultra, not having a back led flash was extremely disappointing and a deal breaker.
Is the Z1 coming to T-Mobile?
How loud are the speakers on this bad boy? Any better than its predecessor?
oh hey Honami, I totally fogot about you lol. Darn Note 3 got in the way.
What about us in other countries? Feeling left out in Norway and we are a neighboring country to Sweden… I would kill for a SmartWatch 2 to go with my pre-order.
