The company had previously confirmed the 4G-capable smartphone will be sold through all three major Australian carriers — Telstra, Optus and Vodafone — but has now revealed some more information.

Sony has confirmed that Telstra will sell black and white variants of the Xperia Z in "selected" bricks and mortar retail stores. Australia's latest telco will also exclusively sell the purple model through its online store but has not yet announced specific availability or pricing details.

Only Telstra will stock white and purple models of the Xperia Z.

Optus will range the black model of the Xperia Z in "selected" retail stores and online. It will be available in "mid-March" but no pricing details have been announced.

Finally, Vodafone will range the Xperia Z in black both online and in-stores from Wednesday 13 March. The phone will sell for $0 upfront on Vodafone's $60 plan over 24 months. This plan includes $700 worth of calls, 1GB of data and unlimited SMS messages per month

Popular Optus MVNO Virgin Mobile is unlikely to sell the Sony Xperia Z at launch, saying "at this stage we don't have plans to range this phone."

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
