Sony’s flagship Xperia Z2 goes on sale in Australia today

Optus, Vodafone and Telstra will sell the waterproof smartphone.

Sony's answer to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) has quietly arrived. The company announced its Xperia Z2 will go on sale with the big three Australian carriers.

Currently Optus is the only carrier stocking the smartphone on shelves at the time of writing. The carrier is offering the smartphone at $16 per month on its $60 plan for 24 months. Customers who buy the smartphone from Optus before the 31 July will get a free pair of adidas training shoes valued at $190.

Vodafone will shortly follow by selling the smartphone on the 7 May for $10 per month on its $65 plan over 24 months.

Telstra will sell the Z2 at an undisclosed later date and is currently taking preorders.

Sony unveiled the Xperia Z2 at the Mobile World Congress in late February. The 5.2in smartphone runs Android 4.4, features a 2.3GHz quad core CPU, is waterproof to 1.5m for 30 minutes and has a 20.7MP camera capable of recording UHD videos.

The Xperia Z2 is Sony’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8) and the Apple iPhone 5S, and now it is finally here.

Customers who purchase the Xperia Z2 will also receive a digital copy of XSCAPE, an album of new tracks from Michael Jackson.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
