NAVY COLOURED NETWORK O2 has revealed that it will be selling the Sony Xperia Go phone later this month, making it the first operator to snap up the cheap and cheerful handset.
Unveiled last month, Sony's Xperia Go is billed as a "rugged" smartphone boasting an IP67 compliance rating, which means it's resistant against dust, scratches and water. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset also features a 3.5in Reality Display with wet finger tracking, and is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor.
There's also a 5MP rear-facing camera with HD 720p video, 8GB of internal storage with microSD support up to 32GB, 50GB of free cloud storage, HDMI connectivity and a 1305mAh battery. Sony will release the phone in black, white and yellow coloured models, but it's unclear whether O2 will be selling all three.
O2 has yet to announce the handset's pricing and release date, and was unavailable for comment at the time of writing. µ
