Pricing info for the new Sony Xperia Z1 is starting to appear online. Clove UK has the flagship at £564 (including VAT) and notes that the first stock is expected to arrive on September 16. For comparison, the old Xperia Z is £450.

Negri Electronics has priced the Xperia Z1 at $730 and will get it in stock a few days later, on September 20.

The Erman press release has prices for the ZZ1 and the various other accessories – the flagship Android phone will cost €650, the availability is a vague "Q3". Unfortunately, we couldn’t find it in any German stores yet.

The press release also lists the prices of the accessories showed off yesterday. The Cyber-shot QX100 lens-style camera is €450 (and $500 on Amazon.com), the QX10 is €200 ($250). The Sony SmartWatch 2 is scheduled for Q3 at €200. The Smart Imaging Stand is €120, while the simple tripod is €40, both are coming out at the end of the month.

LG G2 with its €550 price tag is a wiser choice(considering tones of exciting features which G2 offers).

Very decent. Retailers should have it a few dollars cheaper than RRP. We are getting it cheaper than the UK, strange!

That's about the same Xperia Z started with. Fortunately it's price dropped significantly in the first months of availability so anyone wishing for a discount, be patient, you'll get it for €500 (unlocked) around Christmas season.

I work for Phones 4 U in England. The Z1 is pretty freaking amazing. Get hands on products before GSM put up their blogs

The smartphone market is now oversaturated. Highend phones should be priced not higher than 600 dollars considering how these phones will be obsolete in a couple of months.
