The Xperia Active will be water-resistant and dust-proof. That’s right you can use your Sony Ericsson Android Xperia Active phone under the water for up to 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter. Not that most people will use it this way, but this can be a life saver should you misadevertendly drop your phone in the sink … toilet… wherever you use it.

As a true phone for active people, the Xperia Active even features a barometer, and a collection of pre-loaded sport apps.
The camera on this phone is a 5-megapixel with HD functionality.
With the wet tracking technology, you can use your phone in the rain and still be able to use it with wet fingers.
Additional active apps include a on-screen heart rate monitoring and pulse report.

This phone is in some ways similar to those tough smartphones built to withstand abuse such as the Motorola Titanium from Sprint or Casio G’zone Commando.

As the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray, the Xperia Active will be available in select markets starting from Q3 2011.
