Sony makes a nice product, but those products come with certain caveats – one is that they are normally expensive and secondly, they are difficult to purchase most places. Sony constantly threatens to play with the 'big boys' when it comes to smartphones and tablets, but up until now, it has been nothing but talk – the quality is there, but the products just never make it out into the public's hands. Two such products are their new Xperia Z2 smartphone and their new Z2 Tablet – both beautiful and feature packed, but nowhere to be found.
Today on Sony's Canada website, both items are available for order – The Xperia Z2 smartphone is available for pre-order and unlocked from the Sony Store, both retail and online for $699.99. The Z2 will be available in Black, White and Purple and the really great thing is that it will work on almost every Canadian provider. It has AWS support over HSPA+ to work on WIND and Videotron, as well as supporting Band 4 (AWS) , Band 7 (2600Mhz), Band 17 (700Mhz) over LTE, which makes it compatible with every carrier in Canada.
The Sony Xperia Z2 sports a 5.2-inch Full HD display with 1920x1080p resolution, run by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800/801 quad-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card for an additional 64GB of storage. The Camera has a 20.7MP main shooter and a 2.2MP front-facing camera for video chatting and selfies. Our source thinks it should be in-stock by the first of June.
The Z2 Tablet is available today, however, it is in the backorder status right now – they expect inventory to be replenished within the next few days. The tablet comes in a 16GB model for $529.99 and a 32GB model for $599.99 – certainly not the cheapest, tablet, but full of specifications. A 10.1-inch display with 1920 x 1200 resolution with 224 pixels-per-inch. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800/801 processor clocked at 2.3GHz with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory with a microSD card for up to 64GB of memory expansion. It even has a 8.1MP main camera and a 2.2MP front-facing camera for video chatting and selfies.
