Sony really puts a hhigh price tag with their release, but wait for a coulple of months price will surely go down. It's been a trend for Sony.
Anonymous, 13 Dec 2012Is this in the normal price range for Sony phones in Russia? Just don't see what makes this on... moreThis price is normal in Russia. Smart phones are overpriced here. For instance price for Nokia920 is 24999 rubles – almost twice higher in comparison with the price in the US.
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.
In Estonia it costs 579€ off contract. If you're already a client of EMT (carrier, part of TeliaSonera), then 549€.
Phonenab, 13 Dec 2012I just don't get it why sony phones offer what other higher technology phones offer at the sam... moreSony is a Japanese company, and prices are HIGH in Japan (compared to the rest of the world). Now that Ericsson is no longer "moderating" their prices maybe they think they can achieve an Apple-like reputation through higher pricetags.
I just don't get it why sony phones offer what other higher technology phones offer at the same high price.
