Its already been selling in Norway for more than 2 weeks. Very expensive country but it was cheaper than this, around $760 maybe. Steep overprice anyway, not worth it unless you REALLY want a waterproof Sony with LTE.

Is this in the normal price range for Sony phones in Russia? Just don't see what makes this one so special to be so expensive.
