Telstra Selling Unlocked Xperia Z1 Compacts In-Store For $552

Android is currently enjoying a good run on the device front. Between the Nexus 5 offering amazing bang-for-buck and well-designed handsets such as the Moto X if you’re after a bit more, it’s hard to go wrong when buying a smartphone powered by Google’s OS. And, for those after something more portable, you can now pick up Sony’s Xperia Z1 Compact, unlocked from Telstra for the tidy sum of $552.

As OzBargain user “moocher” points out in this thread, the telco is selling Sony’s latest device, unlocked, for $552. You’ll have to wander to a store to take advantage of the price, but it does come with a 24-month warranty and the cost is competitive compared to the likes of Kogan and eGlobal, when you take shipping (and a smaller warranty period) into account.

  • Wrong link to Gizmodo review. We are talking about Z1-compact here, but link points to review of original Z1.

  • I’ve never been one for buying obsoleted mobile phones, even at a small discount, as the manufacturers really do wind back on the versions.

    The Z2 has been announced. Granted this is the compact, but one can safely assume that in 2 months give or take the Z2 compact will also be available.

    Safer in my eyes to wait the few scant weeks until Z2 or Z2 compact is available and be more assured of getting 4.5 when it’s out in a few months than your hopes of seeing 4.5 on last year’s phone.

    • Except the gap between the announcement of the Z1 and the Z1 Compact was roughly 4 months (September ’13 to Jan ’14). Following a similar timeframe, that would put the announcement of a Z2 Compact at around June, and availability around Q4 this year.

      Pretty sure not many people would hold out for that long – especially considering Sony intends to have flagship launches twice a year.
