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."

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
