Sony smartphones are, and continue to be, a real mystery to most people – we know Sony makes smartphones, we have seen pictures of them and have even read reviews on them – the problem is we never actually have the opportunity to buy them. Today that is about to end for some lucky Canadian subscribers as both Sony and Bell have announced an exclusive agreement today to sell the new Sony Xperia Z2. Ravi Nookala, President of North America, Sony Mobile Communications stated in their press release:
"With Xperia Z2 we are delivering unique experiences to Canadians that only Sony can offer. We have redefined the new standard for a premium smartphone once again with Xperia Z2. Bringing a powerful and sophisticated waterproof design coupled with a camera offering an innovative experience that captures memories in stunning detail through 4K video recording and new ways to use the camera with more unique Xperia camera apps.
