1. I am still bent towards Ultra (6833) - question is what and how long is the future for it in terms of support / firmwares etc.
2. I dont see a comparable newer devices which I can opt - I like xperia z ultra pretty much and inclined on it having used it of more than 6 months. - Z2 etc I have seen, but screen size andworkable area that impresses me
what other devices are possible better - pls dont push me for HTC or Sammy
If updates is important and you love the ultra, check out the GPE edition. I'd say sony version will have support until Sept 2015.
If you're looking for something updated with a big screen there are lots on the horizon...
