Mouth watering phone, eye watering price. This way it won't be long before flagships hit the $1000 mark.
Do mobile companies think everybody is getting richer :P I certainly am not.
this looks awesome phone. and it will sell very well for sony. making them a lot of money. but its a premimum handset. so dont expect figures like samsung S3
my o my , 01 Feb 2013clearly SONY is future's APPLE!well i rather pay that amount for the xperia Z than pay that for the iphone
to all who keep on saying the Price of this State-of-the-art phone is 2 high , are u people blind or sth ? HTC butterfly is Xperia Z right ? its just isnt Water proof - dust proof and heck it looks way uglier than Xperia Z , do u know the price of that thing ? why on earth no one said anything about that phone being overpriced ? and to people who wanna wait for M7 or GS4 plz do wait , and we'll see who gonna pay more for their phones wich they will not look as good as Z in no way and they wont be water-dust proof , just maybe 10% more powerfull , i really suggest u to wait . oh and i forgot to say that HTC B have a smaller battery and also it deosnt have a 13 MP Exmor RS Camera .

Since android geeks are always specs followers, ... moreWhen you buy a latest-state-of-art device, is for yourself to enjoy. Why do you bother about the reselling value dropping??! You think that you are playing with shares and stocks?
Technologies get outdated very fast. So, get a grip and enjoy what you purchased. Don't worry about tomorrow. Coz' tomorrow may not be coming also.
gargamel, 01 Feb 2013this price is a joke. You can buy 2 X Nexus 4 16GB and still have $139 in your pocket. Whoever... morein indonesia, nexus 4 price around 550 USD, so u can only buy 1 and without water prof and worse design. do you think all smartphone will have same price tag in every country??

By the way, Nexus 4 doesnt cost much less in most of the world, also in Europe its not available from google in most countries. For the price its the worst. Even if sold in just a few select countries its impossible to get your hands on a 16GB version. Yes there is really something wrong in your head if you suggest everyone get nexus 4 16 GB.
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2013Maybe he has other priorities in life than worrying about silly phone specs.What a negative illogical response. Think before your post....Which I hope that wasn't thinking because if so....which phone to get or who to pick on is the least of your worries right now
Anonymous, 01 Feb 2013Down on value is bad for sellers/resellers Since android geeks are always specs followers, ... moreSo your saying for the whole population of android users, that they are all tech geeks and always wants something new? I guess i dont fit in that category as I am smart enough to buy phones when i need to or when my contract expires... you do realise most people dont buy new phones outright, but in a contract normally 2 years. So those who are looking to buy outright when the phone first comes out, obviously has the money and wont worry about resale price of their old device... Galaxy S3 is almost 1 year old now and it's re-sale value is still around $300-$400, brand new is $400+ which is still a good price.

Every Android user is just a mindless idiot who only wants the highest specced phone at any cost and trades in their new phone every month or two for the latest models. Wow you are just so smart

Since android geeks are always specs followers, they tend to want to own high spec phones, so they want to sell their current phones and get the newest version.. and as the specs move so fast.. you can never keep up and losing lots of resell value of your current phone.
