Wi-Fi-only Sony Xperia Z Ultra announced for Japan

Some two weeks ago we’ve told you that Sony is working on a Wi-Fi version of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and now that device has been officially announced. Alas, at the moment its availability will be limited to Japan but the hope is that other markets will get in the near future, as well.

Japanese interesting in this petite tablet will be able to get it for ¥52,000, which translates into some $449. In comparison, in the U.S., the LTE-enabled version is selling for $649.99, whether it’s running Sony’s software or comes in a more “pure” Google Play Edition variant.

Aside from the lack of cellular connectivity, this remains the same Xperia Z Ultra under the hood, sporting a 6.4-inch full HD screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip, 2GB of RAM, and an 8-megapixel camera on the back. All this comes in a fancy lookin’, 6.5mm-thin waterproof casing.

The question we have for you is – would you go for a Wi-Fi only Xperia Z Ultra?
