The Phone made for Bond is available at Bell (Sony Xperia Z5)

Over the past years, I've watched Sony really fumble when it comes to getting their name out there.

But lately I've seen a ton of these commercials:

Made for Bond, eh?

Well, the phone that's made for Bond is only available at Bell.

Here's what you get for a $650 phone (outright, $200 on a plan)

5.2" @ 1080p
Snapdragon 810
2GHz x8

And it also includes a fingerprint scanner in the side power button, which I think is a cool place to put it.
