Summary:

A promo advertisement suggests that EE will include a free Sony Smartwatch 2 for customers that pre-order the Sony Xperia Z1 handset. Could an U.S. carrier follow suit and sweeten the deal for Sony’s latest smartphone?

“Pssst… Hey buddy, wanna buy a watch?”

You may not have to buy a watch at all if you pre-order Sony’s Xperia Z1 handset, expected to debut tomorrow, September 4. In what looks to be a promotion specific to EE in the UK, those who pre-order a Z1 will get a free Sony Smartwatch 2.

The promo was spotted by the Xperia Blog, which suggests that most UK carriers will pick up the Xperia Z1 for sale. There’s no information on the smartwatch deal with any other carriers.

Here in the U.S., few Sony devices have been available directly through carriers. Instead, Sony typically sells their devices at full price through the Sony Store. There have been a few exceptions of late, however with the Sony Xperia Z available through T-Mobile for $99 down and 24 monthly payments of $20. The competition for U.S. consumer dollars is pretty fierce however; if T-Mobile adds a free smartwatch to the newest Sony handset it could sweeten the pot and sway some sales for Sony.

  1. I haven’t bought anything from Sony since their BMI Music “Hackware” mess back in the 90’s. How could they be trusted with a phone?

  2. That ad is for EE judging by the branding, it might be a specific EE operator offer.

  4. Sony has deconstructed its best smartphone and put it back together into something amazing. The Xperia Z1 (codename Honami) is a powerful, camera-centric flagship backed up by the QX line of attachable camera modules and the SmartWatch 2. It has 5 inches of scratch-resistant LCD screen, with fullHD 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution and 16M colour depth, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean | 2200MHz Quad Core processor in Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2GB RAM, Adreno 330 GPU, 16GB internal memory, expandable to 64GB, 20MP of rear camera with fullHD recording, 2MP of front camera, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS (with A-GPS), microUSB connectivity, 3000mAh Li-ion battery
