Vodafone has just announced that they’re now testing Sony’s new baby, the Xperia Z via their Google+ page.

Sony’s latest flagship phone boasts a 5-inch, 1080p display powered by a quad-core 1.5 Ghz CPU and 2330 mAh battery, runs Jelly Bean 4.1.2 out of the box, and promises to be water- and dust-proof. To say it’s a highly sought-after item would be an understatement.

The device is rumoured for release in Japan on February 9 and in Europe on February 18. While Vodafone hasn’t yet announced availability or pricing, it’s encouraging to know they’re already putting the device through its paces.

Vodafone was also kind enough to add a picture of the Xperia Z along with its older brothers, the Xperia S and Xperia Sola. They’re running a bit of Q&A in the comments of their post, so head on over to the Source link if you have questions that need answers.

Are you excited by the Xperia Z? Would you switch to Vodafone for it? Let us know in the comments!

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

ill be buying this outright from Allphones ill already hve a plan so i just need the phone cant wait to get it in white hopefully the price is just about right


Any news if Voda are testing this as a 4G device?

I’m hoping Sony hasn’t done something silly like going with Vodafail as an exclusive for this one. I’m happy to go with Optus, Telstra, or one of their resellers, but I won’t go Vodafail again.


I wish Sony had a decent car dock, particularly with the USB and headphone sockets behind protective covers on the Z…

only port is missing is audio port…their desk dock looks gd…wish 3rd party docks come out soon
