The Xperia Z2 Tablet from Sony is now up for pre-order exclusively through Verizon, but if you were looking to learn a bit more about the device, Big Red has published the above video to bring you up to speed.
For starters, if you didn’t already know, the Z2 Tab features a 10.1″ Triluminos (1920×1200) display, Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera, and comes running Android 4.4.2 with Sony’s custom skin on top. (more…)
The Xperia Z2 Tablet from Sony is now available for pre-order through Verizon’s website. This development comes a few short days after a leaked screenshot showed employee training had begun for the device.
Verizon has the distinction of being the exclusive retailer of the Z2 Tablet. It’s available on the carrier’s website for $599.99 without contract or $499.99 with a two-year agreement. (more…)
Within the last hour, we reported that Verizon would put the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet up for pre-order starting tomorrow. Verizon has now made that news official, by announcing an exclusive hold on the tablet in the US that will run customers $599. For a limited time, Verizon will let you buy Sony’s flagship tablet for $499 with a new 2-year contract, though that sounds like the worst deal in the history of tech.
The tablet will be available in Verizon stores on July 17, just as we reported. (more…)
American buyers know that Sony doesn’t have a major presence here in the States anymore. Even if we do want one of the OEM’s devices, say the Xperia Z2 for example, we have to wait months upon months before having even limited access on carriers through exclusivity deals. As a consumer, it blows.
Finally, Sony has made the Xperia Z1 Compact available for US buyers, purchasable from their website for the price of $549.99. (more…)
No matter how many times Sony denies it, leaks have the Xperia Z2 pegged as a Verizon exclusive on American shores. When it will exactly hit retail, however, is another matter entirely.
Thanks to new information courtesy of PhoneArena, there is reason to hope that a launch is just around the corner. A screenshot of a Verizon employee training module shows an online course for the Xperia Z2. That’s a far cry from confirmation, but could be a sign that an announcement is imminent. (more…)
Amazon is hosting one of their regular flash memory sales today, where they have slashed prices on micro SD cards, regular SD cards, and flash drives by up to 70% off. Sony is featured in today’s deal, which is a little different than normal, since we typically just see SanDisk and Samsung.
So you can grab 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB Class 10 UHS-1 cards $8.99, $15.99, and $32.99, respectively. Those are insanely low prices.
The US market may not be Sony’s priority, but mounting evidence suggests the Xperia Z2 may make its way to at least one stateside carrier in Q4. Press images of a Verizon-branded variant of the Z2 showed up twice on Sony’s website last month, and despite vehement denials by company spokespeople, @evleaks revealed yesterday that the Z2 may launch on Big Red as the Sony Sirius Viv (D6503). (more…)
If you were disappointed that the pre-order page for Sony’s Xperia Z2 tablet lacked any mention of US carrier support, fret not, as leaker extraordinaire @evleaks has released images of a Z2 variant with Verizon branding. Presumably, once it passes “certification,” we can expect the LTE version of the tablet to support Big Red’s bands. (more…)
