Sony Xperia Z Ultra

Yesterday pricing details from Sony France and Sony Netherlands surfaced, suggesting that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra would cost roughly €700 in Europe. Now we also have word on the phone’s price in Germany. You can pre-order the device from Amazon Germany right now, with a slightly-lower price of €679, or about $885.69.

No beating around the bush here, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is an expensive handset. The question is whether the Z Ultra is worth such a price tag. For some, the answer will certainly be yes.

With a 6.4-inch Full HD display, the Z Ultra isn’t your typical smartphone. Sony’s big-screen beauty is more than capable of replacing a traditional 7-inch tablet, effectively giving you both a tablet and a smartphone in one convenient package.

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra also is rather impressive when it comes to its hardware, powered by a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB RAM. Other specs include an 8MP back cam, 16GB storage, microSD and a 3,000 mAh battery.

Sony’s Z Ultra might not be perfect, but it is certainly the most powerful device in its class and sets a new standard for 5.5-inch+ handsets.

If you’re worried about the price, just remember that you don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune to get the Z Ultra. The phone will likely arrive at much lower upfront pricing for those that are willing to sign a two-year contract.

As for when you will be able to get your hands on the phone? The device is expected to arrive to Europe in Q3 of this year, and hopefully will launch in the North American market sometime shortly thereafter.

What do you think, do you plan on nabbing the Sony Xperia Z Ultra when it arrives to your local market?
