Sony Xperia Z sales going well

Sony announced the Xperia Z last month as its newest flagship smartphone, hoping that it would be able to compete with market leaders like Samsung and Apple – which are shipping millions of high-end smartphones weekly. It looks like the Japanese company is off to a good start, as Xperia Z sales in Japan and France (the only two markets where the handset is available for now) are going well.

IT Media reports that 140,000 Xperia Z units have been sold in Japan in the first week of availability, while in France (where the device costs €649 unlocked) stock depleted in just one day.

If things continue like this in most of the markets where Sony intends to launch the Xperia Z, an important milestone (let’s say 5 million units sold) will probably be reached soon.

Currently running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Sony Xperia Z could be updated to the newer 4.2 Jelly Bean starting next month. This, of course, would add to the handset’s appeal. As you may already know, the new Xperia is waterproof and dust-proof, featuring a 5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, 2.2MP front-facing camera, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 2,330 mAh battery.
