The latest mobile phone from Sony has arrived in the massive form of the Xperia Z Ultra, but it has landed with an equally massive price.
It has emerged in the Netherlands, with the heavy cost of €719 (£610) to buy a SIM-free handset, but whether or not the cost will drop by the time it reaches the UK in the next few weeks remains to be seen.
The 6.4-inch device comes sporting a powerful quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, an eight-megapixel camera and like the previous Xperia handset is waterproof and dustproof. It will also run Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
Network Three has announced it will be carrying the phablet when it does finally reach UK shores, but no plans or costs have been confirmed yet, neither has an official release date so users will have to be content with "coming soon" for now.
