Sony Xperia Z the latest to get a Google Edition?

New information revealed this weeks might bring another contender to the market of Google Edition phones, embracing the ranks of the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. AndroidGeeks has revealed an inside Sony source that indicates the Xperia Z will be getting the Google treatment next.

And while Sony has already been a part of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) for the Xperia Z, thus allowing users to install stock Android on their own, it seems like the Japanese company will still be moving towards releasing the phone to come pre-loaded with stock Android. One advantage would be users being able to have access to OTA firmware updates, something that users with Xperia Zs currently running AOSP aren't able to do.

There is still limited information in regards to a Google Edition Xperia Z, it will most likely be running Android 4.2 (...unless of course, by the time the handset is confirmed, Google gets around to confirming and releasing Android 4.3) and released through the Google Store as being US only at the beginning. All other specs, in regards to device hardware, are expected to be identical to current Xperia Zs on the market. 

CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, 1,5 GHz, Quad-Core
Display 5 inches, 1.920 x 1.080 pixels
Memory 16 GB, microSD expandable
Camera 13 MP (Rear), 2 MP (Front)
Operating System Android 4.2
Dimensions 139 x 71 x 7,9 Millimetres
Weight 146 Gramm
Battery 2.330 mAh

What do you think about Sony getting the Google Edition treatment?
