Introducing Xperia™ go and Xperia™ acro S – two new stylish, durable and water resistant smartphones from Sony

Hello everyone!

Today, we’re excited to welcome Xperia go and Xperia acro S into the Xperia family – stylish, sleek smartphones made to deal with life’s challenges without compromising on design or functionality. 

Boasting premium specifications with beautiful design, extra durability and water resistance, Xperia go and Xperia acro S both have scratch resistant mineral glass displays and meet industry standard IP ratings* (International Protection) to fight off dust and the effects of water immersion.

As you’d expect Xperia go and Xperia acro S enable effortless connectivity to share and enjoy content on TV, smartphone, laptop or tablet. They also come preloaded with Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited from Sony Entertainment Network giving access to Hollywood blockbusters, TV series and millions upon  millions of music tracks.

Both Xperia go and Xperia acro S will be available globally from the third quarter 2012.

We’ve listed some of the key features below, but if you’d like to get to know them even better we’d like to invite you to join us this Friday 16:00 CET for a live webchat with Calum Macdougall and Sharath Muddaiah – two of the brains behind our Xperia smartphones past and present. We’ll be bringing you more information on that later today/tomorrow morning, so please stop by then for the full details.
