One of the most interesting devices of early 2013 is the freshly announced Sony Xperia Z, which was unveiled a few days ago in Las Vegas at CES.

Since then we saw a variety of mobile operators and electronics retailers announcing plans to sell the device, with the smartphone slated to hit stores in the first quarter of the year.

O2 Germany is ready to join the group of future Xperia Z providers, and the German mobile operator is already listing on its website the LTE version of the handset.

While pricing details and actual availability dates are not public yet, the carrier does that the Xperia Z LTE will be available to order in February, so there’s plenty of reasons to get excited.

We expect even more carriers to announce Xperia Z availability soon, and we can’t but notice that Sony is doing quite well so far at ensuring its next flagship device will enjoy a close-to-simultaneous launch in various international markets several months ahead before some of its main competitors will be released, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC M7, the LG Optimus G2, the upcoming Nexus 5 or the iPhone 5S/6.

Let’s hear it from German Android fans out there! Will you buy the Xperia Z LTE next month?
