Sonys newest Xperia XZ pre-orders sell out in 45 minutes in Taiwan

Sony hasnt necessarily had the best year when it comes to smartphones. Many were quick to put the new Xperia X lineup down because of its drastic change over the previous Z models and higher-than-expected retail pricing; not to mention the lack of a fingerprint scanner in US variants of all Xperia Z models.

Sonys pre-orders in Taiwan, however, for the Xperia XZ smartphone have already sold out in only 45 minutes. Sonys pre-order promotion offered early buyers a charging dock, 16GB USB-C storage connector, and two cases: one flip cover and a back cover. This was incentive enough for people to go nuts with pre-orders in HTCs home country.
