Q. What does Pre-Order mean?

A. Pre-Order products are models new to Sony that aren’t in stock just yet. In many cases, these products are available for pre-order exclusively online at, before they’ve hit the store shelves at Sony Store or any other retail store. If the product you’re interested in displays a Pre-Order button, it isn’t available yet but it can be reserved for order when it becomes available. Click on the Pre-Order button and continue through checkout to be among the first to receive the product you’re waiting for.
