The durable Xperia go

In between the excitement of the launch of the Samsung SIII, the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Apple iPhone 5, the launch of new phones by Sony went almost unnoticed.

Well, they have come out with a really durable phone they call the (not very exciting) Xperia go. However, the phone has some great features. They claim that the phone which has a scratch-resistant 3.5" display, has the highest water and dust resistance of any smart phone available. Most durable phones are usually quite thick, but the go is just 9.8 mm thick and weighs 110 g.

It runs on Google Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and is powered by a 1 GHz NovaThor™ U8500 Dual-core processor. It has a Talk time of up to 6 hours and 30 minutes and standby time of up to 520 hours (Wow! if true).

It comes with 5 a MP camera with auto focus, 16x digital zoom and LED flash. Yes, it takes HD videos (720p) as well.

What I like is the fact that it has 8GB internal memory, 512 MB RAM, Flash memory: 8GB eMMC and expansion slot which can take a microSD of up to 32GB. Plus you get 50GB free cloud storage.

The Experia go is available in 3 colours and costs only £219.
