Sony Ericsson has partnered with Australian surfing and sports clothing empire Billabong, to come up with a smartphone cover attractive to surfers, water enthusiasts, and anyone who wants to be cool.

Starting today, trendy, limited, custom colored Billabong Edition covers are available to Xperia Active users in select markets. To match these custom colors, some apps and software are also included in the availability, including several videos and Billabong screensavers. While not exclusive to consumers, there is an additional Billabong Live app, which lets users watch Billabong Pro contests straight from their Android devices.


Along with the Xperia Active experience comes an exclusive SurfTrip game for the Xperia Play.
