sony xperia z1 aa 4

Itching to get your hands on the Sony Xperia Z1? If you live in the United Kingdom, you’ll be happy to know that the handset is now starting to ship from select retailers.

Clove, Handtec and Digital Phone Company are just three of the retailers that have confirmed the new flagship device is not only in stock, but it is ready to ship as we speak. The only caveat is that all of these retailers are currently only offering the black model.

For those that are hoping for a purple or white model, Sony Mobile UK is currently selling the handset SIM-free in all three colors for £599.00. If you don’t have your heart set on purple or white, you can find the phone for much cheaper SIM-free pricing through retailers such Clove.

With Clove, the Xperia Z1 is yours for £564.00 including VAT. Even better, Clove is giving away a free Sony SmartWatch 2 with purchase. If that’s not enough for you, Clove is also providing roughly £110 worth of special content, including 60 days of Sony Music Unlimited, 5 Sony movies and 10 Playstation mobile games.

How much will the phone set you back, on contract? Pricing seems to vary from free all the way to £374.99, depending on the plan and carrier that you choose.
