Kiwi Steve, 09 Feb 2013I agree the specs are top notch but why 32gb in Z and 64gb in ZL. Why couldn't it have been 64... morei see your talking about the SD card support, the hardware on both appears to be the same (not in all parts, there may be a chance SD reader is the same, if this is the case it will fairly easy to bypass any software lock on SD card use, however i would love SDXC support for up to 1-2TB cards already
TheGuru, 08 Feb 2013Too all those Sony haters, please keep your comments to yourself... We love our Sony products ... moreplay station??? why didn't you mention play station?! ICO, Shadow of the colossus, God of war, GT?!
but yeah your dam right!

Why couldn't it have been 64gb in both. Also cost to Sony of putting 32gb ROM compared to 16gb is tiny. Typically Sony New Zealand will only release the Z so I don't get a chance to get ZL unless I buy through parallel importers. I accuse all large corporates (Sony, Samsung, Apple, Google, etc.) of arrogant indifference to their markets.

Kiwi Steve, 09 Feb 2013Z = 32gb microSD and ZL = 64gb microSD. I don't get that ! Also wish manufacturers would stop ... moreIl rather have 16 gb and microsd rather than noting besides if you are diligent to instal and reinstal you wil nvr had a problem. And beside are u wiling to sacrifice 1 feature in this phone just to increase the storage? Ewample. Wiling to lose exmor camera sensor just to have increase??

Just to finish this if sony to become a nexus phone I believe you wil not get the ful benefit about what sony has to ofr. Bravia eng 2, walkman and others now I believe with nexus pricing it be superior in ui bt not hardware. There wil be compromising hardware.
when will be available in abu dhabi or philippines...i want this phone

From the images it looks like Xperia SP is 4.6 inch. then Sony owns both high and mid end, and Xperia L will seal the lower end of budget dual core class by being the successor of Xperia U (hopefully)
android_fun, 08 Feb 2013nexus 4 is betterBut what is good about Nexus 4? I dont see any reason to get one. And about OS updates, its void, since you need to root and use custom ROM to use USBOTG to expand storage. Nexus 4 will get working USBOTG in updates but same as Nexus 7 it will be only to support mouse and so on, not flashdrives.
And it has no LTE, very poor camera, fragile back cover, and so on. Is this in any way competing with high end Androids?
In countries where there is no play store the Nexus 4 is by far the most overpriced phone, other midrange offerings are a lot cheaper and offers card slots. Plus, we are here because we want Xperia Z, theres no way you can convince us to buy a midrange device instead, and honestly i would rather get Xperia V IF i was looking
