Sony Xperia go: hands on video

Sony Mobile’s Xperia go is both water and dust proof, carrying and IP rating of 67. This means that it can be placed in water to the depths of 1m, for 30 minutes while being dust tight too.

The Xperia go has a 3.5in 480 x 320 scratch-resistant reality display that is powered by the Mobile Bravia engine. A dual-core 1GHz processor sits in the driver's seat, along with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of accessible internal storage. There is also a 5-megapixel camera on-board and it runs the Android Gingerbread 2.3 OS, which will be upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich later this year.
