Bit of interesting news for you europeans.
Here Ya Go.
I think this pretty much confirms that the 1R's remote cable will be compatible with the new Z. Been wondering about that for a while now.
Brand new 24 month contract? Don't really feel like getting bent over the table by a mobile provider just for a pair of 1Rs.
NVM: It's only contract based for those who pre-order it through those carriers. Wish my pre-ordered Z would bundle with some decent portable headphones.
