The Xperia acro was a real success story for Sony Ericsson Japan last year and it looks like its follow-up will end up doing just as well. After recently going on sale, the Xperia acro HD is topping the smartphone sales charts in Japan. The GSM NTT DoCoMo version of the Xperia acro HD is sitting pretty at the number one spot, whilst the CDMA version from KDDI is holding the number two spot.
The acro HD includes a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.3-inch HD resolution display (720 x 1280 pixels), 12.1MP Exmor R camera sensor, 16GB of internal storage (plus microSD support), 1840mAh battery and HDMI. It also has Japanese specific features such as infrared port, NFC mobile wallet and TV tuner. This handset will also be waterproof to depths of 1m.
