Xperia Z is "soon to be released" to the Aussies, according to the Facebook page of Sony Australia. The social network admin notably avoided a direct mention of the price this time around. But a month ago, the same page announced a clear price tag.

"Pricing is still to be confirmed," reads the response of Sony AU to price questions raised by the page followers. Previously, the page admin said the Xperia Z price tag will show AU$749 direct from Sony Centers.
