    It's almost like Sony is making their own Google Play Edition

    "It has some significant differences compared to our current commercial releases, with a stripped back, vanilla Android look and feel, with native Sony features and apps we find most popular amongst our users."

    5.1.1 for their normal rom was also released to Z3 & Z2 series today. Sony you just may convince me I don't have to buy a nexus.

    Yea I thought that was a weird decision too, I guess it's because the phone unit is based in sweeden? Would imagine they'd get many testers if they opened it up.

    since they are providing a tool later to recover back to old launcher it is strange they don't open it up. I applied anyway to chance my arm.
