Sony has announced two new Xperia devices – the Xperia Acro S, and the Xperia Go – both of which are rugged and waterproof offerings, destined to hit shelves sometime in Q3 2012. Both new Xperia devices feature protection from the environment, including scratch-proof mineral glass on the displays.
The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-based Sony Xperia Acro S bears a 4.3-inch 720p HD Reality display, a 1.5Ghz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage (11GB of which is user accessible), and a 12MP camera with a Exmor R sensor, a f/2.4 aperture, and 1080p HD video recording capabilities. It also bears a front-facing 1.3MP 720p HD camera, as well as NFC and GPS connectivity (with GLONASS), and a HDMI port.
Just like the Xperia Active, the Xperia Acro S will come with wet finger tracking technology. The Acro S has also been certified to be protected against dust, and 30 minute long immersions in up to 1 metre of water. The Xperia Acro S will reportedly be available in black, white and pink colours.
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread-based Sony Xperia Go (which will be launched as the Xperia Advance in the US) bears a 3.5-inch 480x320 Reality display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage (of which, only 4GB is user-accessible), and a 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording.
The Xperia Go is certified to stand the same level of water immersion as the Xperia Acro S, but, has a higher dust protection rating. The Xperia Go will be available in black, white and yellow colours, and should get an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade soon after launch.
