Google has finally announced that Google Play editions of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and LG G Pad 8.3 are not only real, but are actually ready for US buyers to pick up today (sorry, global fans, no word on availability yet). The Xperia Z Ultra is available for $650, while the G Pad can be all yours for $350. From what we can tell, all of the specs appear to be exactly the same as the original versions, but they're offered without the specific OEM customizations that we've grown to love or hate. If you're interested in grabbing one, head here.

Update: We'd be remiss not to also mention that the Xperia Z Ultra comes unlocked with plenty of LTE, HSPA+ and GSM/EDGE bands. Here are the specifics: it offers seven-band LTE (700, 850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100, 2600MHz), pentaband HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100) and quadband GSM/EDGE. For US users, this means you'll be able to stick your AT&T or T-Mobile SIM and get full coverage, not to mention you can use it in several regions overseas.

Update 2: Interestingly, Google and Sony appear to have dropped the Xperia name from the Google Play edition of the Z Ultra.
