Optus has just advised that the Sony Xperia Z will go on-sale today online, in selected stores and through phone sales. The phone is available on the Optus 4G Network which is now live in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Newcastle, Adelaide, Surfers Paradise and Brisbane CBD. But fear not if you live outside of those markets as the Xperia Z works just as well on 3G.
The Xperia Z is available for existing Optus customers for $0 upfront on the $60 plan on a 24 month contract(min total cost $1440). However, somewhat inexplicably Optus has decided that new customers will be charged a $3 handset repayment to enter into the same 24 month contract(min total cost $1512). The $60 a month plan has $650 of included value, 1.5GB mobile data, unlimited standard national SMS and unlimited voice calls to Optus mobiles, all within Australia.
