Xperia ZL up for pre-order in US, contract free from $720 - read the full textThe Sony Xperia ZL is up for pre-order in the US from Sony's own retail store. The device comes in two unlocked options - an HSPA version that's up for $720 contract-free and a 4G-enabled $760 one. The latter works on LTE bands 2, 4, 5 and 17, so it should, in theory, be usable on AT&T's network....

$720 for Xperia ZL is insane! It does not worth that much.
Nexus 4 has the similar CPU+ RAM but only sells for $350.

I guess the more reasonable price for Xperia ZL may be $450.

The additional $100 is to offset the additional cost for higher resolution display, 13MP camera, & micro SD Card Slot.

Is this fair enough?

But to be honest, the price of this handset is WAY too high. Other competitors can be had for less. HTC's One is a better phone in every way and still is cheaper.
