Sony Xperia S repels dirt and recharges fast
The Sony Xperia S captured a lot of attention and hearts at the CES 2012 in Las Vegas. And with the 12MP camera on back and the 1.3MP camera upfront, the unit has your photography needs covered. You want 1080p HD video capture? You got it! The 4.3 inch 720p screen has a nice 342ppi for crisp images. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm MSM8260 processor, and 1GB of RAM is aboard. Android 2.3 is pre-installed.

What wasn't listed with the specs is the fact that Sony told Swiss web site that thanks to the phone's "UV-active nano-coating," the Sony Xperia S repels dirt and also protects the device from the everyday wear and tear that a smartphone faces. Another feature on the Sony Xperia S is the improved lithium-polymer technology that allows the device to charge in half the time of a regular battery. Just 10 minutes of charging time will get the Xperia S up and running for 1 hour.

The Sony Xperia S will be launched overseas in the second week of March with its U.S. cousin, the Sony Xperia Ion, rolling out in the second quarter.
