Rugged Sony Xperia acro S now available unlocked in the US

For a phone with IP55 and IP57 ratings for dust and water resistance, the Sony Xperia acro S manages to avoid the boxy look of your typical ruggedized Android device. It also features specs not typically associated with that class of handsets. With a 720p display measuring 4.3 inches and a dual-core CPU, the Xperia acro S stacks up to be a pretty surprising little smartphone. And now it is officially up for sale in the US direct from Sony.

Unfortunately, that means the purchase will set you back $650, though the cost comes at the benefit of a handset free of carrier obligations. To check it out, head over to Sony’s web store linked below.

    As long as you dip your toes in and not just jump right in, I know that the bigger screen you have the less likely to go back to a smaller then current handset. You have a 3.6″ and get a 4.3″ and then think the 3.6″ was small… Then go to a 4.5″ then 4.65″ and then to a 4.8″ …. You’re not looking back to any of previous phones screens size. Then you get to 5.3″ and you’re stuck, everything you compare to a device needs to have that screen size. Samsung got you, yo!
