Sony’s flagship Xperia Z2 goes on sale in Australia today

Optus, Vodafone and Telstra will sell the waterproof smartphone.

Sony's answer to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) has quietly arrived. The company announced its Xperia Z2 will go on sale with the big three Australian carriers.

Currently Optus is the only carrier stocking the smartphone on shelves at the time of writing. The carrier is offering the smartphone at $16 per month on its $60 plan for 24 months. Customers who buy the smartphone from Optus before the 31 July will get a free pair of adidas training shoes valued at $190.

Vodafone will shortly follow by selling the smartphone on the 7 May for $10 per month on its $65 plan over 24 months.

Telstra will sell the Z2 at an undisclosed later date and is currently taking preorders.

Sony unveiled the Xperia Z2 at the Mobile World Congress in late February. The 5.2in smartphone runs Android 4.4, features a 2.3GHz quad core CPU, is waterproof to 1.5m for 30 minutes and has a 20.7MP camera capable of recording UHD videos.

I own Sony Xperia Z tablet for more than a year. Nice, light and fast. But.. Sony as usual screw up many things.
First - for long time I was unable to get cradle - opening silly flaps to plug USB cable s very annoying
Two - Screen protector should be installed by factory
Three - Lack of covers - leather one was a disaster, very heavy and slippery

And to conclude - checked on new Xperia Z2 tablet at Sony kiosk at Chatswood - Sony moved charger points to different place, if you buy new one, you cannot use old cradle!!
And stupid flaps are still there, why Sony did not use flaps with springs like in their waterproof cameras - sorry different departments!

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.
