Sony, Billabong team up for special-edition Xperia Active

If you're a fan of the surfwear company Billabong, then you might want to check out this special edition smartphone from Sony.


Surfers, snowboaders, skaters, and action sports enthusiasts everywhere, there's finally a smartphone just for you.

Sony has partnered up with action sportswear company Billabong to release a special edition model of the Xperia Active . The Billabong Edition features a special back cover and comes preloaded with exclusive screensavers, videos, and a Billabong Live app, which offers live streaming, as well as photos and news, of the company's surf contests. In addition, you get a copy of the Billabong Surf Trip game.

Like the regular Xperia Active, the Billabong Edition has a dust-proof and water-resistant design with a 3-inch, 320x480-pixel touch screen that works even if your fingers are wet. Other fitness goodies include built-in ANT+ wireless technology for connecting to a compatible heart-rate monitor and an included armband. Don't expect extreme power, though, as the Xperia Active ships running Android 2.3 Gingerbread and has a 1GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera.

The Xperia Active Billabong Edition is available now in select markets, but pricing information was not available at the time of this writing.
