Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 – best protection with Sony Style Cover SCR12

Since the launch of Sony’s much anticipated Xperia Tablet Z2 is around the corner (72hrs and counting – maybe less I hope) … TGB is looking around at the possible protection that his beloved new Tablet should be getting when he gets his hands on it.

Sony Style Cover – RRP S$58.00 at all Sony Stores islandwide now.

Although, TGB would rather be getting this …

Oh well, time to wait for V3’s call … Time goes by so slowly.

TGB buys the Sony Xperia Z2 & gets the Privilege Movie working too!

TGB had managed to lay his hands on a set of the widely touted as “shortage of devices” flagship device from Sony – The Xperia Z2.

i am sure if you guys go around online, you might find that there are a bazillion of “Oh-i-have-got-the-sought-after-device-yeahness” post all over the internet.

Well, this post is gonna be slightly different.

Most Sony users who have been using the Xperia devices at least since Xperia Z would have known about this nifty app called, Xperia Privilege Movies – yeah, the one that you get 06 free movies (for Singapore) with every purchase of the Xperia Z Ultra and Xperia Z1?

For some weird reasons, here in Singapore, Sony has only chosen to work with M1 for the availability of the app on the latest Flagship device (let’s hope it is a temporary benefit meant to help M1 drive more sales.) – and being a Non-M1 user, I am not entirely sure if there are new movies etc to download.

But anyway, long story short, we cannot download the app on our device if we are outside of M1’s world.
So what does Geeks like me with our very active Privilege Movie account do on our new device?

Simple, we improvise!
GPGT, Xperia Privilege Movies worked on Z2!

As usual, Got Picture Got Talk (GPGT) … so if you need to know how to get around this and get it to work on your brand new Xperia Z2 … Leave your name and contact email here and I will share with you how to do so.  🙂
