Xperia activeThe Sony Ericsson Xperia active is due to be released in the UK on 9 September 2011 for a reasonable £229.99 according to The water resistant 3-inch (320×480) handset runs on a 1GHz Qualcomm chipset and carries a 5MP camera sensor capable of 720p video recording.

As the name suggests, the Xperia active is designed for the sporty amongst you and can handle 30 minutes under water (up to 1m) without suffering any damage. It also has wet tracking technology that allows you to use the touchscreen under water. Rog from SE-First put the Xperia active under water to see if it survived (it did). Check out the video below.

  • I like sony so much but im always wondering why they dont make a phone with waterproof, cybershot and walkman built in on the phone that would be a top top cell phone

    I assume there are reasons for that.

    I would assume it is so as not to ‘spoil’ the market or somewhat.

    If they make more varity of phones on affordable prices, it would cater to more people with different needs thus more sales. And If they just concentrate on one super phone, chances are that it’ll be too damn expensive and many people will not be able to afford it thus lower sales.

    Personally i’m in favor of an all featured super phone cause i think i would be able to afford a USD$900 phone that would last 2 years of contract. After subsidie probably around USD$500~600? But then again many people just don’t have that luxury to do so thus SE’s concern. =(
