Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three, said: "We're extremely pleased to offer the Xperia Z for pre-order from the 1st February and coupled with our highly competitive price plans and no surprise out of bundle data charges, this premium smartphone brings you the ultimate internet experience all on our Ultrafast network"

Three is offering contracts from £34 per month with an upfront cost of £69 for the Xperia Z. The firm's Pay As You Go price is £449. O2's cheapest price with a free handset is £44 per month or you could opt for £13.50 per month but with an upfront cost of £479.

Carphone Warehouse has deals starting at £34 per month with a free Xperia Z. Vodafone will also be selling the Xperia Z on 28 February but hasn't announced any price plans for the device.

Sony Xperia Z launch date: 28 Feb. Who's excited?

Sony has announced that customers who pre-order the Xperia Z will receive a free pair of MRD-1R headphones worth £299. "This offer is only available for a limited time" said Sony. For example, Three says the headphone are available for the first 1,000 orders.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
