Sony just pulled the cloth off two new phones for the future. They are called the Xperia Acro S and the Xperia Go. Both are "semi-rugged" devices, meaning they are designed to be water, scratch and dust resistant. The Xperia Go is a mid-range device, but the Xperia Acro S has some fairly stout higher-end features. Here's a breakdown of both:

Xperia go
  • 3.5” Reality Display powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine gives razor sharp clarity
  • 5MP fast capture camera goes from sleep to snap in just over a second
  • Scratch resistant mineral glass display with wet finger tracking
  • Highest level of dust and water resistance in a smartphone – IP67 Rating
  • 1Ghz dual core processor gives consumers super fast performance
  • Launching on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), upgradeable to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Available in black, white and yellow colours


Xperia acro S
  • 4.3” 720p HD Reality Display powered by Mobile BRAVIA Engine gives razor sharp clarity
  • 12MP fast capture camera goes from sleep to snap in just over a second with a single key press
  • PlayStation™ Certified
  • Full 1080p HD video recording and 720p HD front camera
  • Scratch resistant mineral glass display with wet finger tracking
  • IP55 and IP57 Ratings for dust and water resistance
  • 1.5Ghz dual core processor gives consumers super fast performance

Sony just keeps cranking out amazing phones. Along with all these new devices, they are one of the fastest OEMs to update their products to the latest versions of Android. How many of you guys would consider a Sony phone? I wonder if Sony will be one of the five manufacturers that Google will be working with later this year for the 5 Google Nexus devices...
