We really liked the Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone when we had a hands-on preview last month. It's fast, powerful, light and thin, waterproof and comes with a 4K-capable video camera.

In features, at least, it's hard to think how Sony could make it a better package.

Oh, wait, they could throw in a TV for free.

And that's exactly what Vodafone are offering if you pre-order the new device -- and are one of the first 3,000 people to do so.

In a blog post Vodafone said the first 3,000 people to pre-order a Z2 on its Red 4G plans will get a free 32-inch Sony Bravia LED TV.

According to the Sony website, you'll need to sign up, receive your Z2 on or just after its release date of 10 April, and pay for one month's service before you can apply for your TV.

After that you'll need to wait for about a month for it to arrive - so don't invite your mates around for a look just yet.

Alas, the HD TV isn't even big enough to view the 4K videos you'll record on your Z2 with all the available detail. Yes, you can zoom in with no loss of resolution, but it will probably be a couple of years before you have a 4K TV to match your 4K phone.

Still, it's a pretty good stopgap, and a pretty good deal too.

Head over to Vodafone for details.
