Well, at least this phone brings some variety in monotonous line of similar devices. However, it's going to be very expensive (I would expect price tag very close to one of regular Z1). Also, I think that Xperia V is very capable device for those who need similarly sized (like Z1 Compact) phone with good hardware, waterproof but 2 times less price tag...
Ideally it should be priced somewhere 100 euro more that Xperia V to become noticeably popular, but I'm sure Sony will try to charge for premium and very likely it will significantly reduce customer's interest. I think taking into account current situation, Sony needs popularize its devices rather than scare customers with high price tag, but it's really up to Sony....

by looking at its picture, i wonder how can it water resistant if the audio jack not covered with flap or anything?
A feature most phone manufacturers didn't bother to include anymore, save for Sony. Lanyard eyelet. Lol.
I'm getting one.
I just got the feeling that this one can compete with the likes of apple iPhone 5s.
