Alexa is built in to a new Xperia 1

Amazon has begun selling a version of the Sony Xperia 1 that lets owners use hands-free Alexa commands.

The phone will include a pre-installed set of Amazon apps, which include Amazon Shopping, Amazon Music, Audible, and Alexa.
When will the Xperia 1 be officially available in this country ? Thus far I did not get any confirmation from anybody, does not matter who I spoke to.

Would be nice if alexa is also installed if it comes to SA, crappy to download new apk all the time.
Why's this even newsworthy? Been running Alexa on a few Android devices for ages flawlessly - with wake word enabled.
Sony is still a cellphone brand in South Africa ? I know no TVs anymore. Disclaimer - I have a Sony Bravia TV and Sony home theatre in a box. Saw that you still get that same home theatre in a box the other day at Game , and Sony Bluetooth speakers at Musica.
