    Sony makes an awesome piece of hardware. I wish they'd show up on VZW. These are the best looking Android handsets on the market in my opinion

    That is a pretty cool phone but can somebody answer why the average consumer needs to be able shoot full HD underwater from their phone?

    Got to love a water proof phone!, but is the battery removable or a sd card if it has one, I've been in the water with countless car alarm remotes at the lake jet skiing and lucky for me the wife had her alarm pad, went swimming with a blackberry, that was the end of that phone.

    can you answer why the average consumer doesn't need to? Honestly I go scuba diving... I doubt this could handle that but regardless even being able to take my phone swimming with me, being able to take videos while going down water slides with my kids or simply playing in the river... why? because I want to that's why. and being able to use my phone to do all of that is absolutely wonderful idea.

    if this show's on VZW I'll definitely give it a look.

    Waterproofed electronic gear is nothing but good. One less thing that can kill your phone is a good thing.

    Sony is kicking ass right now. Except: been hearing about these Sony devices for almost a year now and STILL CANNOT BUY ONE!
    Finally the tablet has a release date announced. It is the one to beat. If I didn't have a tablet I'd get the Experia in a heartbeat.
    And I'd like this phone, too. If Sony is still in the game 2 years from now when this contract ends, I WILL jump ship.
    Go Sony Go.

    As I RAN from my car to my office this morning with my tablet tucked under my shirt in the rain, I couldn't help but think "if this was the Sony, I could hold it over my head TO KEEP MY HAIR DRY!"
