Ever since the 5-inch Sony Xperia Z debuted back in Las Vegas at CES, a lot of folks have been eager to get their hands on one and try it out. That includes certain members of the AC staff that didn't make the trip to Vegas. Thankfully -- in the UK at least -- there's a way to play with the Xperia Z before its general release thanks to a high street retailer.
Starting tomorrow, Feb 15, Phones4U will be displaying demo units of the Xperia Z at more than 300 of their retail locations for eager consumers to try before they think about parting with their hard earned. The Xperia Z will then be available at the retailer starting Feb 28 and will be available free on a two-year contract starting at £36. Additionally, the first 1000 pre-orders will receive a pair of Sony MDR-1R headphones which themselves retail at Sony for £299.
I know where I'm headed tomorrow now, and if you happen to do the same in the coming days, be sure to jump into the forums and let us know what you think. Full press release can be found after the break.
