Here is yet another Sony Ericsson smartphone to hit the masses, where it will sport the Xperia name – which means that it is guaranteed of getting an Ice Cream Sandwich update in due time. The Sony Ericsson Xperia active is a rugged device that is set to rock your world, no matter what kind of adventures you have it accompany you. Why do I say so? Well, the Xperia active is not only water resistant, but it is also dust-proof as well, where even wet fingers can be tracked by the 3″ multi-touchscreen display. It does not matter whether you are heading out for a rainy hike, climbing up and down snowy slopes or having the time of your life through mud-splattered bike trails, the Xperia active lives up to its name and more. Another thing is this, it does look better than Sonim’s handsets, but I don’t think it will be able to last falls from great heights.


Other hardware specifications include a built-in GPS, barometer and compass, where you are able to monitor your heart rate on-screen and ni realtime, thanks to ANT+ wireless networking technology, a reality display with Mobile BRAVIA engine for a more realistic rendering of images, a microSD memory card slot and Android 2.3.4 as the operating system of choice. Expect to fork out $369.99 for the Sony Ericsson Xperia active in an unlocked form factor.
