Sony Xperia acro HD flaunts its waterproof, colorful bod in a promo video

0. phoneArena 18 Jan 2012, 09:23 posted on

There's Victoria's Secret's fashion show, and then there are Sony's gadgets promo videos. The latest one is of the Sony Xperia acro HD, essentially an Xperia S for the Japanese market, but without the new NXT design with the illuminated transparent strip around it.

Great and beautiful phone, sure Sony has potential. But the Galaxy III should outshine it, if you ask me.

Why would it outshine it? This phone is launching Feb-March...Galaxy S3 will probably launch June-July and compete with the new phone Sony is releasing. And apart from that, specs and design on this phone has blown off everyone at CES...it is for sure better than the Galaxy S2, so it has a great chance to compete with the S3.

Of course, the specs are fascinating and of course, it will compete with the S3 in an more or less even fight. With "outshining" i mean "getting more attention, hype, whatever".

The ppi-rate is amazing here.

I won't necessary say outshine specially that Sony now is working on the Dot and 4 screen technology which would be a major improvement over Samsung :P Also don't forget that the Xperia S is playstation certified :) Best of luck to both phones competing, at the end its us consumers who gain from companies battling each other.

The GSIII cannot outshine it because as we all know, Samsung doesn't care when it comes to innovating on designs.

Once again it's a Japan only phone, which in turns kinda suck to be not in Japan!

Because due to some legal matters which I have no knowledge about, up-to now that joint venture isn't legally separated yet. Thus the Sony Ericsson name stand. . .

S stands for Sexy or Secret for Victoria Secret. I will be buying the Sony iOn when it launches on At&t. Sony always makes beautiful designs on their phones.
