Does not every smartphone user wish they had more smartphones for more different reasons, some of their activities and some of their pastime? There is at least one now for the surfers, snowboarders, skaters and other action-sports enthusiasts. This brilliant idea of allowing people the fun of having a separately dedicated smartphone for such action sports came of course from Sony, which has partnered with action sportswear Billabong to launch a special edition of the Xperia Active, according to a report by CNET. It is called as the Billabong Edition and features special back cover.
Not only that but when you get preloaded exclusive screensavers, videos, and a Billabong Live app, you cannot ask for more. Through Billabong app you can get live streaming, as well photos, and news about the company’s surf contests. Is not it a dream come true for all the surfers. Alongside all this fun comes a copy of the Billabong Surf Trip game all for free. As with the Xperia Active, the Billabong Edition also has protection against dust and water as it is dust-proof and water-resistant design with a 3-inch, 320×480-pixel touch screen that will work no matter what now.
So get your dusty and wet fingers onto it and start playing. There are other fitness goodies like built-in ANT+ wireless technology that will connect to a compatible heart-rate monitor and has an armband too, just in case of emergencies. But there is no need to expect extreme power, as the Xperia Active chips run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera. The Xperia Active Billabong Edition is out in the market. The prices are not yet confirmed.
