Sony Xperia Z smartphone now available on £22 tariffs

Less than six months after it was officially unveiled at CES in Las Vegas, the Sony Xperia Z smartphone can now be purchased on contracts starting from £22 per month without any upfront fee and, dare we say, with a rather decent allowance to play with.

The offer is available from online retailer Mobileshop on O2. You get 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data for a total cost of ownership of £528 which is about £70 more than the cost of the phone by itself, SIM Free (although you can get it from e_cell for as little as £415).

What's more, Sony is giving away a £20 voucher to be redeemed against content (movies, apps, games, music) on its Sony Entertainment Network services.

As for the smartphone itself, it runs on a quad-core SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, the Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8064, with a 5in 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution, a 13-megapixel rear camera, IP57-certification, Sony Mobile BRAVIA 2 engine, Exmor RS technology, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 2,330mAh battery, 2GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
