*Dust proof and water resistant smartphone powered by Android™
*Scratch resistant multi touch screen with wet finger tracking
*All the applications for your active life, including on-screen heart rate monitoring through ANT+

22 June 2011, Singapore –Sony Ericsson today announced Xperia™ active, a compact smartphone targeting consumers with an active lifestyle, in conjunction with CommunicAsia 2011 in Singapore. With a 3” screen and running the latest Android platform for smartphones (Gingerbread 2.3), the phone packs Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, a 5mp camera with HD video functionality, and a powerful 1Ghz processor. Xperia™ active is dust proof and water resistant* and uniquely incorporates wet finger tracking, to ensure the phone works perfectly when either the screen or a user’s fingers are wet.


The phone comes pre-loaded with sports apps that enable consumers to easily track their fitness levels. Users can set their ideal training route using the built-in GPS, Barometer and Compass. On-screen heart rate and pulse can be monitored in realtime (enabled by ANT+ wireless networking technology), while the iMapMyFitness app can monitor day to day performance. Additionally, Facebook inside Xperia™ allows consumers to share their progress and experiences with friends.

Fredrik Månsson, Global Product Marketing Manager, Sony Ericsson said: “Xperia™ active is the ultimate smartphone for an active life. Not only is it packed with all the features and applications consumers need for a worry free mobile life, it also comes with a set of accessories that make it fun and easy for them to take it everywhere, whatever their daily plans are.”

Maria Sharapova, a three time grand slam winning tennis player added: “I love this smartphone because it perfectly fits both my professional and personal needs. It keeps me in touch with my friends as I travel the world on the pro tour and tracks my fitness both on and off the court.”

Extras included in the box to further build the consumer experience:

One extra exchangeable soft touch back cover
Detachable ear hooks for the portable handsfree active headset
Wrist strap to keep the phone close at all times
An arm case for use during a workout
2GB memory card to save all your special moments
Micro USB cable for charging and computer data transfer
*Water resistant – the phone can be kept under 1m of water for 30 mins.

Sony Ericsson Xperia™ active will be available globally in selected markets from Q3 2011.

^^ I don't know if my eyes are fooling me, but it looks quite small judging from the size of the Sony Ericsson logo. so i think this is the resurgent W710 made for fitness. i hope there's an armband accessory as well

It's too bad.
I would SO buy this if it had 480x854, but they crippled it.

It really suck that to get an "active" phone, you have to get one with low specs. =(
Currently NExus 4, but want Xperia ZR.

I see this as a X8 successor which means its great and with these specs it should slot just under the xperia mini.
I don't want a signature anymore.

Thanks Phoner for posting the spec list. Not a bad niche product, it seems to have all the necessary specs apart from HDMI out.

I was just about to get this to replace my cycling computer, but after reading the specs, it became a no.

This is suppose to be a sports phone..... A real GPS is expected, not an aGPS. Freaking ridiculous!!!! This is a big mistake on SE's end.

An A-GPS is a GPS which can make use of the mobile network to find the satellites faster. Some A-GPS devices can function as a standalone GPS as well (if a network is present they use it, if not they revert to plain old GPS functionality).

But no aGPS can get a signal within 10 second like my Garmin Edge 500, therefore it's a no no. Let's just say I do use the mobile network to find signal, I highly doubt the phone can last long enough for me to finish my 100+ mile rides, which can last from 5 to 9 hours depending on the route and distance I take. Therefore the aGPS is useless.

aGPS uses the mobile network to assist in getting an initial lock on your position. Once that initial position is acquired, the GPS positioning lock is active unless reception with GPS satellites is lost.
