Editor’s note: Sony PR reached out to us to clear up the confusion regarding the rumor that the Xperia Z2 is coming to Verizon. See below.
“A mock-up image was mistakenly posted to the Sony Mobile Google+ page. The image has since been removed and we apologize for any confusion this may have caused. For our U.S. customers eager to find out more information about the availability of Xperia Z2, we are excited to share that the device will be coming to the U.S. unlocked this summer.”
The Xperia Z2 is a great deal in its own, but Sony wants to make it even better.
If you’re in one of the countries where Sony already sells its flagship, make sure to check the collection of free apps and subscriptions that Sony throws in with every Xperia Z series purchase.
The offer is worth, according to Sony, $350, and does not include other freebies that Sony announced in the past, such as six free movies, 10 games, and Michael Jackson’s new album XSCAPE. Highlights include 50GB of storage on Box for life, and full licenses for OfficeSuite Full Pro and Garmin. Here’s the full list:
- Garmin, Full Suite (Xperia Z2 only)
- OfficeSuite Pro Full version
- Box 50GB for life
- Evernote premium, 3mths
- Bitcasa 1TB storage, 3mths
- 10 Xperia themes
- Social live premium, 1mth*
- Three additional games and apps
These apps and subscriptions are available to users of the Xperia Z, Xperia Z1, and Xperia Z2, depending on market availability. To get them, you will need to log into Sony’s Xperia Lounge app and redeem your offer. Overall, Sony put together a nice little digital gift bag, even if you won’t necessarily need or appreciate all the apps and media inside. More details here.
Sony Xperia Z2 to Verizon?
In related news, there might be hope after all for Sony fans in the US. The company announced it will sell the Xperia Z2 unlocked from its store starting this summer, but there’s a slim chance Verizon will carry it, if this shot published on Sony’s Xperia Google Plus page is an indication.
So far, Sony collaborated mostly with T-Mobile to sell its Xperias in the US, and made no secret that it’s not interested in the North American market. The presence of Verizon’s logo on that Xperia Z2 is no guarantee that the carrier will ever put the device on offer, but hey, a man can dream, right?
