It is not exactly a secret that Sony’s main interest is in markets in Europe and Japan. It does not mean that the company has entirely forgotten about its US customers, though. However, Sony fans on this side of the pond have to wait a bit longer to get their hands on the manufacturer’s products. Tuesday, October 15th, was a big day for those waiting for one of Sony’s latest offerings. The company has finally released in the US not one, not two but three devices: the Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra and SmartWatch 2.
Sony Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra and SmartWatch 2
The Sony Xperia Z1 is possibly the most exciting of the trio. The phone is available from Sony’s online store as well as a number of select retailers for $669.99 for the HSPA+ version. Sony is bringing the Xperia Z1 on its own without support from any of the US carriers, which means that the phone will be available unlocked.
Sony contributed also to the phablet sector with the launch of the Xperia Z Ultra. Measuring 6.44-inches diagonally, the Xperia Z Ultra is just a tad smaller than a tablet. Just like the Xperia Z1, the device is up for grabs from Sony’s online store and select retailers. The phone costs $649.99 and $679.99 for the HSPA+ and LTE model, respectively.
The last but not the least on the list is the SmartWatch 2. The device can be yours for $199.95. Like other Sony’s offerings, the SmartWatch 2 is dust and waterproof and is compatible with any Android phone, which is a big advantage over the recently unleashed Galaxy Gear smartwatch.
