On top of these unique features, the Xperia Active will do everything that any other Android phone will do, so you can surf the web, check your email or play Angry Birds when you're not working out. The limiting factor here is likely to be the smallish display, but as we said before this is a powerful device and games and other demanding applications should run smoothly.
The standard sales package includes a 2GB memory card, arm case, wrist strap and a sports stereo headset in addition to the usual bits and pieces.
Sony Ericsson say that the Xperia Active should be available during Q3 2011. No guidance was given on price, but we would expect the Xperia Active to retail for something in the region of €250 to €300 at launch.
