The company had previously confirmed the 4G-capable smartphone will be sold through all three major Australian carriers — Telstra, Optus and Vodafone — but has now revealed some more information.

Sony has confirmed that Telstra will sell black and white variants of the Xperia Z in "selected" bricks and mortar retail stores. Australia's latest telco will also exclusively sell the purple model through its online store but has not yet announced specific availability or pricing details.

Only Telstra will stock white and purple models of the Xperia Z.

Optus will range the black model of the Xperia Z in "selected" retail stores and online. It will be available in "mid-March" but no pricing details have been announced.

Finally, Vodafone will range the Xperia Z in black both online and in-stores from Wednesday 13 March. The phone will sell for $0 upfront on Vodafone's $60 plan over 24 months. This plan includes $700 worth of calls, 1GB of data and unlimited SMS messages per month

Popular Optus MVNO Virgin Mobile is unlikely to sell the Sony Xperia Z at launch, saying "at this stage we don't have plans to range this phone."

STYLISTIC Q702

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

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
