We’re sure everyone has that moment when they wish that their smartphone was built like a tank and came with a waterproof body; you know, something along the lines of the Sony Xperia Go. What we’ve seen so far concerning Sony’s rugged smartphone is that not only can it take some serious beating, but it also plays nice with water.
If you haven’t been enamored with the black Xperia Go, the white variant is now available in the UK.
The white Xperia Go will be offered SIM-free by mobile retailer Clove starting August 7 for £210 (tax included). For that amount of money, you’ll get the unlocked Xperia Go and some peace of mind when out and about. It’s slightly more [...]
Some smartphones are made more durable than others, but it doesn’t mean you should let your imagination run too wild on devising ways to torture your phone — unless you have the money and time to spend. Cue the following videos, which will show just how tough the compact Android phone that goes (see what I did there?) by the name of Sony Xperia Go can be.
Before we get to the videos, here’s a brief reminder of what the Xperia Go comes with underneath the rugged surface. The phone boasts a 3.5-inch HVGA display, dual-core 1GHz NovaThor processor, 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard storage, 5MP rear camera, 1,305mAh battery, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Lest we forget the [...]
Unveiled a few weeks ago next to the more technically impressive acro S, the mid-range (or low-end?) Sony Xperia Go has just gotten FCC’s approval, and is therefore on its way to a US release. We still don’t know when exactly is the American launch supposed to happen or how will the 3.5-incher be priced, but if you’re interested in an affordable phone with some nice extra features, you should watch out for the Xperia Go.
As some of you might remember from that presentation video from a while ago, the Xperia Go (a.k.a. Advance, as it’s supposed to be called in the United States) will come with IP67 certification for the “highest level of dust and water resistance for [...]
Less than 48 hours after officially unveiling the Xperia acro S and the Xperia go (also known as the Advance), Sony has made the two phones’ specs official. The water and dust-resistant duo stars in two new official video clips, where you’ll be able to take another quick peek at the phone’s sleek designs, but also check out their most important features.
The Xperia acro S is clearly the star here, as it is pretty much a (slightly) upgraded Xperia S with some resistance to the elements added. The exact same dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 processor powering the original Xperia S can be found in the acro S. You also get 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of on-board memory, a [...]
If Sony’s current smartphone lineup has failed to excite you, perhaps you’ll find something to like in the company’s next two offerings. Meet the Sony Xperia Go and Xperia Xperia acro S, the newest members of the Xperia family, that have just been announced by Sony and will be launched in the third quarter of the year.
The Sony Xperia Go is a 3.5-inch phone of 320 x 480 resolution equiped with the standard Mobile BRAVIA engine to give its display a boost of sharpness. The dual-core 1GHz processor should be enough to provide a lag-free experience on the phone’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread, though it will be upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich. Other specs of the Xperia [...]
