It’s time to rejoice, Canadians – if you use a mobile phone through Bell, that is. The mobile provider gets the exclusive rights to the Xperia Z Ultra, which will launch in mid-October, which is only a few short weeks away.

Sony Mobile Communications touts the phone as the “most exciting revolution in large-screen smartphone entertainment devices,” but if you can get past the hyperbole it definitely seems like a solid phone and a 6.4″ HD screen is nothing to shake a stick at. Unless it’s a hockey stick. You people love hockey.

The Z Ultra is waterproof, dust resistant, and features a stylus, 8MP camera, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2.2 GHz quad-core CPUs, 4G LTE, and Battery STAMINA mode to get more out of your battery.
