Sony Mobile announces their first waterproof and dustproof smartphone - The Sony Xperia go


Sony Mobile ain't done yet with new phones still spewing out their production line. Two new Android smartphones from the young company has been announced. One is their first waterproof, scratch resistant, and dustproof Android smartphone dubbed as the Sony Xperia go. The smartphone is so tough it actually gets IP67 certification and proof of that toughness can be seen in the smartphone's first promotional video you can watch at the end of this post. The Xperia go will be a globally available device and will launch in the US under the name of the Xperia Advance. Unfortunately, Sony Mobile did not give us any exact dates on when the smartphone will actually be available in markets. But the Xperia go is scheduled to launch in the 3rd quarter of 2012.
