The New Sony Xperia Z is IP55/IP57 meaning that it is Dust and Waterproof. Such durability has only ever been seen on budget to mid tier priced handsets however Sony are the first to bring this technology to their flagship device.
The Sony Xperia Z breaks boundaries. How many people have destoyed their mobile phone by dropping in water, perhaps the bath, sink or puddle? I am sure Insurance companies across the land could tell us that it's a huge percentage of mobile phone claims. However, the Sony Xperia Z will not only defeat these daily hazards, you can even choose to take it into the shower with you.
The Xperia Z is not just waterproof, it has a protective design which demands attention. It has an anti-shatter film to aid against bumps and drops and uses tempered glass.
As mentioned before the technology is not new - in fact Sony themselves last year had great success with the Sony Xperia Go. This was a mid range handset with a lower spec. The Sony Xperia Z is that premium device. It has a 13 megapixel camera and a 5 inch Full HD display. This big boy will take some beating in 2013 if you pardon the pun.
