Great info Chief. For those who are not aware, pre-order starts 30 Sep to 8 Oct. More info at http://www.sony.com.sg/microsite/xperiaxzpreorder/
yup but this is secret stuff

publicially the staff will say its Oct 15 but will call if available earlier

only saw it when they were looking thru their folders at the cashier for the preorder and it was written on the page for X compact that collection date is 8 Oct... ofcoz this is not meant to be seen by customers

To those who are wondering about the lack of IP Rating for X Compact, here's an interesting video of the water or rather Pepsi proofing test:

I love the compact white.. Look absolutely gorgeous and durable too, even though its plastic. The length is shorter as well, easy for guys who put in front pocket.. Rear cam is same quality as xz.. Only need to get used to the smaller 4.6inch screen..

I wil be buying it due to the camera (much improved compared to xa)... New manual cam settings too, now u can adjust shutter speed etc..

The actual phone actually does not look as thick as the photos/renders appear to be...

just had a look at the demo set at sony nex.... supposed to be dual sim but no idea if it supports 3g on the second sim slot

and the thickness of the phone does seem to me a bit on the high side (129 x 65 x 9.5 mm)

Just test-drove the XC at Wisma. The light weight and camera were impressive. Pre-ordered the black one, though it is a fingerprint magnent

i didn't see the wrong card.... there was "DUAL SIM" printed in small text above the price - which was stated as $648. i actually had to look closely to confirm that my eyes weren't fooling me
