Sony has come out with a word on the shortage issue of the Xperia Z2 providing some good news to residents of the UK. Customers who have already pre-ordered the device will get it next week, while new customers will have to wait until May 1 to get their hands on the smartphone. This comes as some parts of the world are seeing delays of 2-3 months, so it seems like Sony is providing its premier flagship to markets on a priority basis.
It will be interesting to see how Sony will cope up with the demand for the Xperia Z2 in the UK and other parts of Europe. Retailers like Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U have already confirmed that customers who have pre-ordered the device through their channels can be assured of getting the smartphone next week. Fellow UK retailer Clove won’t start shipping the smartphone until mid-May though.
Sony has acknowledged the supply issue of the smartphone, but that’s clearly not affecting the launch of the smartphone in the UK. With Sony’s flagship devices not having a massive presence in the U.S., the company will have to do whatever it can to make them a success in markets of Asia and Europe.
