The Sony Ericsson Xperia active was due to launch in the UK on 9 September for £230 when we last checked. However, it looks like the release date has now been put back to the end of the month as play.com now expects stock on 30 September (it has also raised the pre-order price to £240). Clove also has the handset for the same price and expects stock on 26th September.
The Xperia active is designed for the sporty and can handle 30 minutes under water (up to 1m) without suffering any damage. It also has wet tracking technology that allows you to use the 3-inch touchscreen under water. It runs on a 1GHz Qualcomm chipset and carries a 5MP camera sensor capable of 720p video recording.
