Sony Ericsson’s new smartphone is sweat-resistant

Sony Ericsson’s new smartphone was made for two kinds of people: sporty jogger types and those who sweat profusely.

Dubbed the Xperia Active, Sony Ericsson’s recently announced smartphone is built to withstand the elements. It’s dust proof, water-resistant and even incorporates “wet finger tracking” (which, admittedly, sounds somewhat gross).

The Active probably won’t withstand a dip in the lap pool (or an accidental drop in the toilet). It’s aimed more at those who want to browse the web while on the treadmill, or perhaps check out their Runkeeper stats while taking on their latest triathlon.

One word of advice, though: last time we checked, it’s still not kosher to talk on your phone at the gym.

Along with the Active, Sony Ericsson also unveiled the Xperia Ray, a fairly bland, run-of-the-mill Android smartphone. It comes with a 1-GHz processor, 3.3-inch screen and 8.1-megapixel back-facing camera.

Sony Ericsson unveiled the devices at the CommunicAsia tech conference in Singapore on Wednesday.
