Sony Ericsson Xperia Active – Unboxing Video

xperia_active_front_blackorange_02_2

We told you of the Xperia Active announcement just a couple of weeks ago. This little Android device is perfect for outdoor sports. Not only does it come with an armband pouch it is also water resistant and scratch proof.

Running  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. Not bad, eh?

You can see the unboxing below along with the full specs of this little bad boy!
