Even though “Wacko Jacko” died back in 2009 he is still releasing posthumous albums and they are creating a stir online. The leading phone carrier in Australia, Telstra, has picked up on this and to try to promote the Sony flagship Xperia Z2 they have agreed to dish out free copies of the CD for those willing to buy a smartphone with them.

For many people who shouldn’t prove any problem especially all of those living in rural Australia where phone reception is not up to standards. Often people have no choice but to pay the excessive prices Telstra offer just so they can get some good signal strength.

Having said that, even though the Z2 is a flagship, it was only 6 months since the Z1 came out and nobody is predicting huge numbers of people to flock around this phone to buy it. For the most part, it might fall to people coming off plans that are taking a look around at what makes sense to them.

The Michael Jackson Xscape album will be available by using the Xperia Lounge application. As a special promotion to make Telstra clients feel special, they have managed to offer 1 track that cannot be found anywhere else, but for the folks in the lounge app after making this purchase.

If you live in the outback then I recommend this handset because it is dust proof and water proof. While water might be scarce I know that the dust is not, with many of the roads offering nothing but dusty tracks in the wake of driving past. Being water-resistant for 30 minutes means you can drop it under water but also have watering sitting on the surface without it causing harm. At the end of the day, it keeps the elegant looks, but offers certain endurance that we are not accustomed to seeing and for that reason I would consider this phone in many parts of Australia.

It runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat for an OS and that is the latest Android has to offer anybody although the word of 4.4.3 coming very soon. For flagships that don’t matter too much because they get updated very quickly as long as you know how to do that. If you want to learn we will cover that guide when it comes out. Design-wise it has 5.78 x 2.89 x 0.32 inches dimensions and weighs just 163 grams. It has a 5.2-inch display and screen resolution boasting 1080 x 1920 pixels. It has very high pixel density at 424ppi and is made from the finest IPS LCD technology. The system chip is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AB and the processor is a Quad core, 2300 MHz, Krait 400. Not outdone easily, Sony have included a whopping 3072 MB RAM and 16 GB built-in storage.

In relation to Telstra, it will come with 4G LTE coverage, NFC, Bluetooth connectivity, WiFi, GPS and a lot more. You can head to the local Telstra store for more details. If you are not sure whether you want it or not just because of the free album, I will list a few of it is main rivals for you so you can take a look around the shops and see for yourself which handsets you like best. They are the Galaxy S5, HTC One M8, Galaxy Note 3, Xperia Z1 Compact, Apple iPhone 5S and the Xperia z.
