Sony Introduces a WiFi-Only Xperia Z Ultra in Japan

Since the first appearance of Sony Xperia Z Ultra, the device gave us a few confusing features. At first, I heard of a GSM-enabled variant. A typical smartphone just like of other wide-screened device with Micro-SIM slot and GPS support. Compared to Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, both are running an Android platform with a closer size.

Furthermore, the company officially announced the availability of Xperia Z Ultra WiFi-only model in Japanese retail store. Except for a GSM support, this version is also equipped with the same specs of the previously reported phablet. And now, it is clear that Sony is also working for a new wave of a nearly 7-inch handheld machine to compete with Apple's iPad Mini and other brands in stores.
