The Xperia Z is coming, and you can pre-order it right now. Better still, if you decide to put your name down on the Sony website you’ll receive some rather posh Sony MDR-1R headphones, and they’re worth £299. The headphones were created with my best mates – Katy B and Magnetic Man – so you know that these are going to sound good.
The phone itself was announced last month and has a 5″ full 1080 HD screen, quad-core 1.5GHz S4 Pro CPU, 2GB RAM, 13 megapixel camera and 4G. It’ll be available in black, white and purple, plus it’s dust and splash proof too.
The Xperia Z also includes a battery “STAMINA mode” which, just like me, keeps things going 4 times longer, baby.
All these free gifts and pre-orders have nothing to do with the fact that Sony want you to buy their phone before stacks of other phones are announced by HTC, Huawei, Motorola, Samsung, LG and others over the next few weeks …oh no.
Anyway. Must dash. Me and Magnetic Man are going to share a cup of Bovril.
