The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact announced at CES
It’s that time of year again – one of my favourites – the Consumer Electronics Show in sunny Las Vegas.
It really is an inspiring event for tech-heads like me and the more I see, the more eager I am to get home and hit the ground running to bring the most innovative and exciting products to our customers.
There have already been some big stories out of this year’s CES – none more so than Sony’s announcement of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact smartphone. And in great news, Telstra will be the first to bring this 4G-compatible handset to Australian customers this April.
Our customers have absolutely lapped up the Sony Xperia Z and Z1, and after trialling the compact version at CES, I’m sure they’ll be just as impressed by this new version which comes in white, black and pink.
The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact offers all the features of the Xperia Z1, just in a smaller, stylish handset, which fits nicely in your pocket.
It’s waterproof (up to 1.5 metres of freshwater for 30 minutes), dust-resistant, it has the same incredibly sharp 20.7MP camera and a crystal clear 4.3 inch screen.
The most impressive thing about this handset for me is that there is no change in the technology from the larger Z1 – as Sony says, it’s compact without compromise.
And with the Telstra Mobile Network now providing 4G coverage to 85 per cent of the Australian population, customers will be able to connect with the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact faster in more places.
While pricing and availability are yet to be finalised, customers can register their interest to keep informed about the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact in the meantime.
