Pre-order Sony's Xperia Z1 Compact SIM-free and get a free SmartWatch 2
The Sony Xperia Z1 Compact was unveiled at CES last week and Sony have been quick off the mark to upload its pre-order page along with a very interesting offer.
Those who pre-order the Z1 Compact direct from the Sony Xperia Store will get a FREE Sony SmartWatch 2 (worth £150). Sony's waterproof smartphone is available to buy SIM-free for £449.99 with deliveries expected to start at the end of February.
Those looking to pre-order the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact on contract can do so via Phones4U. They have a free gift too which is a free Sony Wireless Speaker worth £119 and £65 worth of music and movies. Interestingly, Phones4U have listed an earlier delivery date of the end of January.
The Xperia Z1 Compact is seen as a direct competitor to the Apple iPhone 5S due to its compact form-factor, premium design and impressive all round specification. Sony have priced their smartphone £100 less than Apple's iPhone 5S and have also bundled in a free smartwatch, but is that enough to topple Apple's flagship smartphone?
