Sony today presented two smartphones that will be waterproof. They will hit the market in the 3rd quarter of the year.

The second one is the Xperia Acro, also waterproof model, but with larger screen (4.3 inches). This model will be Android 4.0, and there is dual-core processor at 1.5 GHz and camera with 12 megapixel.
