Pre-orders for the Xperia Z have opened in Australia via the Sony Store website. The Xperia Z is priced at A$749, which is exactly what was expected. However, you’ll be charged an extra A$9.95 for delivery. There is also only the choice of a black Xperia Z right now.
There is no delivery date outlined, although we understand that stock is expected towards the end of March. There doesn’t appear to be any promotions associated with the off-contract deal, but these may appear once we hear about carrier pre-orders. The handset is expected to be carried by Telstra, Vodafone Australia and Optus. Optus recently pointed to availability in mid-March.
