Default Availability in UK


In anyone here a resident of UK and knows as to when Xperia will be available there? (may it be on contract or without contract)

I ask 'cos my cousin is coming here next week and i'm thinking of asking him to purchase it for me. Would be better than waiting for it to arrive here God knows when.

Best Regards.

Ok expansys price is over the limits, but I believe that when it reaches the release date the price will drop to the competition levels.

And the o2 tariffs at seem the best value, especially the 35 per month option (you reduce the tariff after 9 months)

At, it seems to me that the best value is the 45 Tariff. It works out at 630 in total (same as 35 tariff) with the 8 months half price option, the phone is free, plus you get more included minutes. So, it's cheaper & better... as long as you remember to claim the half-price line rental along the way.

Not sure what O2's data is like though, so may look to T-mobile.
Current phone: Nexus 5

Previous phones: HTC Kaiser, SE Xperia X1, HTC HD, HTC Pro2, HTC HD2, HTC Desire Z, Galaxy S2, HTC One X, Galaxy Note 2

Argh typical, I just get my TMobile compact and annouce that. My other contract was up on 25th so I needed a phone, I could have waited till 27th....but then again I got my phone on a 12 month contract which works out nicer plus I got £100 cashback so even better.....that kinda sooths the pain

LOL I said all along that they will keep delaying it, when june comes it be july when july comes it be august when august come it be september when september comes it be october and so on At least they are predictable at predicting the next release hmmmm lol S.E are brillant, I predicted they would do that, I feel a little sad for them to be honest, every thohng isnt going good at all, Profits down, poor moral, I suggest them to go into liquidation and let the big boys take over, they did make a nice phone in the k750,
tut my condolescense do go out to them, the saying Goes
"If you cant deliver .....keep your trap shut" lol
