Sony Ericsson Xperia active Billabong Edition brings the sports enthusiast out of you
Already, we’ve become attuned to the ruggedness of the Sony Ericsson Xperia active, however, it’s getting a makeover that will bring the sports enthusiast out of you. Today, Sony Ericsson announced a global strategic partnership with Billabong – you know, the company that makes all of those cool sports themed clothing apparel and various boards.

In order to show their mutual love towards one another, we’re being introduced to the Sony Ericsson Xperia active Billabong Edition, which we can see below in all of its wave themed glory. There’s no arguing that the handset is already something that would perfectly fit the needs of extreme sports enthusiasts, thanks to its waterproof nature, but it has been outfitted with a design that’s so distinct to the styling associated with Billabong.

Aside from the visual cues, it retains the same specs as before, and it’s also choked full of Billabong related software features such as screensavers, videos, and the Billabong LIVE app. To further promote the sports oriented Android powered smartphone, it’ll also be taken and featured in many major Billabong sponsored events worldwide.

As much as we’d love to see this beauty make a landing stateside with a domestic carrier, there is no indication in the press release that it’ll be available on our side of the big pond, but rather, it’ll probably be making its presence overseas. Still, if you happen to be a surfer or something, this is absolutely one smartphone perfect for the occasion – plus, its looks will match as well!
