As Sony’s most durable, water-resistant smartphone, the Xperia go is built to handle life’s unexpected moments. It has a scratch resistant mineral glass display and meets the IP67 ratings for protection against dust and water immersion between 15cm and 1m for up to 30 minutes. The Xperia go will be available in November through Fido and exclusively at Sony Stores in a limited edition yellow.

This powerful device conceals its rugged nature in a slim and attractive design, and, at only 9.8mm thick, users can enjoy its lightweight feel and easily transport it in a pocket or bag among keys, change and other items with reduced susceptibility to marks or scratches. The Xperia™ go’s sleek and stylish design means durable no longer has to look bulky and ruggedized.
The Xperia go has a 3.5-inch display that provides a visually brilliant viewing experience with razor-sharp clarity and brightness. The 5-megapixel fast capture camera, quick launch feature, and 720p HD video recording capabilities help to catch life’s unexpected moments in crystal clear quality.
