Xperia Z Ultra Now Available for Pre-order;
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is the first device to boast the behemoth of a SoC processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon S800. This device is ‘Ultra,’ not only in terms of specifications, but in physical size too. At the moment, it is available only on Amazon
for a staggering $1240.
The Specs are:

At the moment, the device is available only for pre order, and is said to start shipping on September 13th.
The Xperia Z Ultra will be the same size as the smallest Samsung Galaxy Tab, at 7.0″, so it will obviously require two hand usage.
For those of you who just need to have the best device at the moment, go for it. However, take note, that there are two more upcoming S800 sporting devices, the LG G2, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
However, the $1240 price tag is only if you absolutely need to snag the device now, but if you wait, the price is expected to drop significantly, especially when released in the US. The date for the US release is not set in stone yet, and there are lots of rumors flying around about the Xperia Z Ultra, so I don’t want to add to those rumors just yet.
What do you think? Do you like it? Will you pre order it or wait for the price to reduce? Let us know in the comments below:
