The tough, the waterproof, Sony Xperia Go smartphone is now en-routing to British shores via major carriers. Along with subsidized on-contract, the SIM free Sony Xperia Go can be purchased for £199 only.
As a reminder, powered by a 1GHz dual-core ST Ericsson CPU, the IP67-certified Xperia Go is dust-proof, and can be submerged in water up to 1 meter for 30 minutes. It also has a 3.5 inch (320 x 480) scratch-resistant display, 5MP rear snapper, 512MB of RAM, and Wi-Fi, HSDPA, GPS as well as MicroSD card support, and a 1,305 mAh battery.
At the moment, the handset is shipping with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, so we suspect a ICS-update soon later.
The Xperia Go is available for £200 SIM-free at Expansys and Clove, and O2 offers it for free on 24-month contracts starting at £18.50 per month. Meanwhile, the Unlocked-mobiles and Play.com also have their goals around.
