Purple Xperia Z an O2 exclusive, due in February

The UK networks have been lining up to shout about the very pretty looking new Xperia Z, with Vodafone, Three and O2 all taking to their relevant social networks to announce plans to stock the new 5″ Sony Android flagship when it arrives in a couple of months’ time.

O2 looks like it’ll be first to start stocking the quad-core model, with its pre-order info page attaching a “February” launch date to it. Meanwhile, O2′s sociable people say on Twitter that it’ll have an exclusive on the purple version of the phone.

We are quite tempted. When it hits the magical £26 a month price point, we may well end up taking a punt on this one. But not in purple.
