This arrived today, the 1st part of the Xperia Z waiting game........
£2.90 from Ebay (UK), with screen protector, hard case, slightly rubberized, but not too much to be "sticky" when sliding into pocket. Very thin, will add very little bulk/weight to phone, and will stop the back getting scratched from laying around. Prefer this option to a protector on the back as well. All the cutouts are well cut, and appear to be in the right places. Back, side, and maybe a little corner protection, clips on. Sorry about the quality of pics.
I've decided against the XZ, i have been deliberating for the last few days about it, and was awaiting the "event" yesterday, and decided to stick with HTC, my last 2 devices have been the Desire and One X, and i like them, so plumped on the One as my next device.
XDA Developers was founded by developers, for developers. It is now a valuable resource for people who want to make the most of their mobile devices, from customizing the look and feel to adding new functionality. Are you a developer?
