Sony to launch the Xperia Z in India on March 6, pre-order is now live in Indonesia

After making some serious waves in Europe, Sony is taking the Xperia Z east. Here's the latest on the flagship phone's availability in India and Indonesia.
March 2, 2013

We told you last month that Sony’s behemoth of a phone, the Xperia Z, is likely to come to India. If you’re still wondering whether it’ll ever see the light of day, here’s some encouraging news that will put your doubt to rest.

Sony Mobile India has posted a photo on its Facebook page that teases the arrival of the Xperia Z in the country. The company has also created a new microsite complete with a countdown timer. It looks like we’re only four days away from the Z’s launch. To be exact, you can mark down March 6 on your calendar.

However, we don’t think that the phone will be hitting stores on the same date, seeing that the pricing detail hasn’t been shared yet.

Meanwhile, folks in Indonesia can already pre-order the Xperia Z from online retailer Blibli, where it’s being offered at a special price of 7 million rupiah ($725) or $50 cheaper than its regular price. All three color variants are up for grabs and the retailer said that it’ll ship out the phone on March 16.
