JAPANESE PHONE MAKER Sony's recently announced Xperia T2 Ultra touted as an 'affordable' phablet has gone up for pre-order priced at £650.
Yes, you read that right. The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra, which Sony unveiled earlier this month as a phablet providing "incredible value for money" has gone up for pre-order at the eye-watering price of £649.48. That's courtesy of SIM-free retailer Unlocked-mobiles.com, which is promising to ship orders on 5 March.
Sony is yet to confirm availability details for the Xperia T2 Ultra, and is yet to respond to our request for clarification.
Sony unveiled the Xperia T2 Ultra earlier this month, touting the handset as an 'affordable' alternative to the top-end Xperia Z Ultra.
The Xperia T2 Ultra has a 6in HD 720p display powered by a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and Google's now-ageing Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system. Despite Sony having been quick to promise an update to Android 4.4 Kitkat for the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact, there's no word as to whether that will come to the Xperia T2 Ultra yet.
Sony's Xperia T2 Ultra phablet also features a 13MP Exmor R rear-facing camera, a 1.1MP front camera, Bluetooth 4.0, 4G LTE support, a 3,000mAh battery and, for those who opt for the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Dual model, a dual-SIM slot.
Despite its large size, the handset also measures a mere 7.7mm thick, and it will be made available in three different colours - black, white and pink.
If you have a spare £650 burning a hole in your wallet, you can pre-order the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra now. µ
