The Z Ultra has a 3,000mAh battery and comes with Sony's Stamina mode for fine-tuning and extending battery life. Other features include Sony's Walkman software, 16GB of storage with support for 64GB microSD cards, and connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, quad-band GSM/EDGE and HSPA+ in the 850, 900, 1700, 1800, and 2100MHz bands.

Sounds great, But.....
Really you make a phone this big and that big of a screen with a smaller battery than the Note 2. This thing is going to have to be power hungry with the processor/screen and that size frame and your telling me you couldn't possibly add in a bigger battery? With a phone like this you better believe I am someone that is going to use this phone more than usual..

The only little detail i can tell will be the size, BUT for a beast like that i wouldn't mind to carry it anywhere different than my pocket.
Seems that Sony is taking things to another level. We...
I'm thinking of installing cellular radios in a 23" flatscreen tv so I can beat the fad. I'll carry a car battery around in my backpack to give it power.
What do you guys think.. would I look as cool as a person holding an almost 7 inch screen to their face?
