XPERIA Active

The Active is an interesting phone. It is dustproof and waterproof. It is powered by a 1GHz processor and runs on Android Gingerbread. It sports a 5MP camera

Both these phones are expected to hit the market in Q3 2011. Pricing has not been revealed but we’ll keep you posted as details emerge. It’s great to see the Exmor R optic technology appearing yet again – we were particularly impressed with the Xperia Arc and the image quality.
