The waterproof Sony Xperia acro S "not currently planned to come to the US"

0. phoneArena posted on 01 Jun 2012, 09:32

The recently announced for release in Q3 handset is "not currently planned to come to the US", Sony answered us in a live chat session about the Xperia acro S and the Xperia go on its official blog. So you'll have to make do with the Xperia go, which will be called Xperia advance in the US, but then, of course, you will be snapping with a 5MP shooter instead of the 12MP Exmor R sensor on the Xperia acro S...

I don't think its a Sony not likeing u.s customers thing, I don't think Sony gets a lot of love from carriers, which is sad. I personally love how the experia line looks, and would love to have one.

According the experia blog.net this phone will be globally released in Q3. I'm thinking this is the mint from sony's leaked road map. Which I think this phone is kind of cool same specs as the experia S but with dustproofing and waterproofing at 1m for 30 minutes.

1. Will the waterproof version be released in Australia?
2. If not, why not. Australia is a large water bound country, with many people waiting for a waterproof phone. Make it happen soon...
