Default Where should I preorder the phone in Germany?

I wanna get the Xperia Z2 as soon as it comes out , but I don't know who will receive it the fastest? It sounds logical to order it on the official sony website but they're not saying when will it be available, you can just preorder it, while Saturn and Mediamarkt are saying it will be available on the 15.04, on Amazon you can preorder too, but there's no mention of the release date , what do you guys recommend? Where should I buy it?

I pre-ordered mine in Black from Sony uk & got a free nfc speaker thrown in worth over £100, but I am not sure if you would get the same deal in Germany.
However Handtec are doing the same deal (free nfc speaker), if you pre-order before the 7th April & it's £55 cheaper than Sony
You could give them a call & see if the deal is available for you, which I think it is.

Here:

Hope this helps

I wanna buy it from a seller located in germany, in case I need to use the warranty it's easier, seems like I will have to get it on the sony website , here they're offering a fitness band I believe for 1 euro extra if you reserve it on the sony website "SMARTBAND SWR10" , quite boring if you ask me, sounds like your deal it's a lot better

I know it's more convenient to purchase from Germany, however Handtec are very good, they have a 7 day no quibble guarantee and a 30 day returns policy for replacemant or refund, after that your phone has the 2 years Sony warranty.

Not only that but they also use excellent well respected delivery companies & dont forget you getting it cheaper than Sony plus a free Portable Speaker with Bluetooth® & NFC
SRS-BTM8...what's not to like

& NO I don't work for handtec , i've just used them for many years & they have been excellent for me personally.

I have also used Handtech for my last couples of Sony phones (including Z2) and they have always delivered promptly on release day.
Not that Handtech is much cheaper than if I bought her in Denmark but the free accessories are much more valuable (with the Z1 it was the SW2).
Btw. the speaker from Handtech is SRS-BTM8.
Best regards,
Harfot

I ordered all my previous phones at amazon.de due to easy and fast replacement if it breaks and also early availability.
Just pre ordered the Z2 from Sony this time as i want that free wristband. I already received confirmation for the order telling me that they will send it as one package meaning that ill get it as soon as both - the handset and the wristband - are available.
I dunno if the wirstband might be released a bit later than the Z2 so its possible that you get it earlier elsewhere.
It said early april in the confirmation mail. just fyi.

I preorderd from Sony too and I had to call the support for an adress change. They told me they try to sell it starting April 1st but it still depends on the major carriers. He didn't tell me why exactly, but he said that no other shop will sell it before they will and we may even get it before the carriers do.

I thought the phone was supposed to be released on the 15th of this Month, this Saturday , I wanted it to be out already to check out the reviews, since the new HTC one is making me doubt my decision

O2 Germany told me it will be available from them in CW 15, that means April 7th earliest.
