Sony shows off two waterproof Xperias

Written by Peter Scott



Tough, yet stylish


Talk about speed. Sony launched four Xperia NXT series phones earlier this year, then it followed up with the impressive Xperia SX and GX earlier this month and now it is proudly showing off two new ruggedized models.

The Xperia Go is the smaller of the two, with a 3.5-inch 480x320 display, 1GHz dual-core processor and a 5-megapixel camera. And no, we don’t understand why Sony went for a 480x320 panel, either. Also, it will ship with Gingerbread, but an ICS update is on the way.

The Xperia Acro S is pretty much an Xperia S after a generous dose of anabolic steroids and a few months in the gym. It features a 4.3-inch 720p screen, dual-core 1.5GHz processor and 12-megapixel camera. Unlike the Xperia Go, it runs ICS out of the box. Also, it looks great, at least for a ruggedized phone.

Like we said, both phones are ruggedized and they meet the IP67 dust and water resistance standard. This does not mean you can chuck them in your fishbowl instead of pressing the snooze button, but they can take a lot more punishment than your average phone.

There is still no word on pricing and both handsets should launch sometime in Q3.
