Sony Xperia Z1

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:

  • France: €699
  • Germany: €679
  • Italy: €699
  • Netherlands: €699
  • Spain: €699
  • Sweden: 5,995kr
  • UK: £599

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.
