The hotly anticipated Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is already drawing attention from carriers and phone stores. A couple of UK-based retailers have chimed in that they've started taking pre-orders.
Phones4u offers the Xperia Z1 Compact on contract with Vodafone, EE, T-Mobile and Orange. The phone itself is free, monthly taxes start at £30. If you pre-order from Phones4u, the retailer will throw in a Sony wireless speaker (SRS-BTX300, valued at £120) and up to £65 in movies and music.
The phone will be delivered on January 31 for those who pre-order today.
If you don't want a contract, Unlocked-mobiles offers the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact on pre-order for £440 (including VAT). The stock will arrive in early February.
All four color options for the Z1 Compact – Black, White, Pink and Lime – are available. We checked other UK-based sites for more offers, but there's nothing yet.
Update: Clove UK has also put up the Z1 Compact on pre-order - SIM-free for £430 (including VAT). Stock will be available in mid-February. Note that Clove is only listing the Black and White versions.

Come to Indonesia, please, please Sony!!! I want this one!!!
I have pre-ordered this from sonymobile.com. The price is £449, but you also get a free sony smartwatch 2 if you pre-order. So after selling the smartwatch the price will work out below £400. Good deal.
Iphone 5s? I know it has bluetooth but you can't send/receive files to/from other users.
