In January we announced we’ll be ranging the Sony Xperia Z – Sony’s new flagship Android smartphone. We know you’ve all been waiting eagerly for it and now it’s here.
The impressive new 4G-enabled smartphone boasts features such as a 13.1 megapixel fast-capture camera and brings Sony’s TV expertise to the smartphone with the razor sharp Reality Display.
You might have heard last month we announced we will start providing LTE over a second frequency band (900MHz) which allows us to deliver better in-building and regional 4G connectivity. The Sony Xperia Z is one of our first smartphones that is 900-LTE ready meaning customers will soon be able to get the super-fast 4G speeds in more places than ever*.
In great news: the Sony Xperia Z has also earned our Blue Tick coverage rating. This means it’s tested as delivering superior handheld coverage in regional and rural areas on the Telstra Mobile Network making it a great choice for our regional customers.
The first 1000 customers who pre-order their Sony Xperia Z online on an Every Day Connect Plan™ or Business Performance Plan before Tuesday 26 March will receive a free Sony wireless NFC speaker valued at $129.
Consumer customers can purchase the Sony Xperia Z outright from Telstra for only $624. Or can choose to sign up to the $60 Every Day Connect Plan™ with a $3 handset repayment per month (after using an included MRO Bonus), with $600 worth of included calls and MMS, unlimited SMS and 1GB of data, all to standard Australian numbers (excludes use overseas) each month. Min cost over 24 months is $1,512.

* Typical download speeds of 2Mbps to 40Mbps are available in all capital CBDs, (meaning within 5km from GPO), associated airports and selected regional locations (3km from regional town centre). Outside these areas, the device will automatically switch over to Telstra’s High Speed Packet Access or HSPA 3G enabled network and speeds will be less. Actual speeds vary due to factors such as location, distance from the base station, local terrain, user numbers, hardware & software configuration and download source/upload destination.To check coverage areas and find out more about Telstra 4G, head to www.telstra.com/4g.
