Vodacom has revealed that it expects the Sony Xperia Z to launch in South Africa during April 2013, while the Sony Xperia Tablet Z should be available from June 2013.

Sony first unveiled its new Android flagship smartphone at CES in January 2013, followed by an announcement at Mobile World Congress (MWC) that the device would go on sale from 1 March 2013.

At MWC the Japanese electronics maker also announced that the Sony Xperia Tablet Z would launch globally in Q2 2013.

Following this announcement, Cell C told MyBroadband that it expects both the Sony Xperia Z and Tablet Z to be available in SA during the second quarter of 2013, but added that they have not yet been confirmed.

Cell C explained that until their testing process has been completed it can’t say whether it will be ranging either device.

8ta said that they too will consider ranging the Sony Xperia Z tablet and phone, but also said that no formal decision had been made.

MTN was asked about their plans for Sony’s Xperia Z range, but the company did not respond by the time of publication.
