Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet now up for pre-order in the UK
The Sony Xperia Z2 and Xperia Z2 Tablet were only announced yesterday, but they’re both already up for pre-order in the UK – that’s got to be some kind of a record. And the good news is that they’re priced a bit lower than we expected.
See, Sony’s official price for the Xperia Z2 in the UK is £599, but you can pre-order it at Clove for ‘just’ £564. That’s still an insane amount of money to pay for a smartphone, but at least it’s £35 less than what Sony would have you believe.
There is a caveat, however. Clove says this pricing isn’t officially confirmed, so unfortunately it may change (for the worse) at some point between now and April, when the first stock is expected to arrive. Regardless, if you want to be among the first people in the UK to sport Sony’s newest and most high-end smartphone, you’ll want to pre-order immediately.
The pricing story is different for the Xperia Z2 Tablet. Sony says the 4G LTE capable variant should cost £499, and that’s exactly how much Clove is asking for it. Once again, the retailer says that official pricing is to be confirmed, but we already know that this is in fact the official price, so it won’t change unless Sony changes it – which won’t happen, as the company is too enamored with its own wares to discount them even before launch.
The tablet should be out in the UK sometime in March.
