The rugged and compact Sony Xperia go will be available in Malaysia starting tomorrow, 10th July onwards. The Xperia go is priced outright at RM999 and it will come with additional accessories such as 2GB microSD card and car micro USB charger worth RM87 for a limited time.
Announced just slightly a month ago, the Xperia go comes with a 3.5″ scratch resistant display that pushes 480×320 and is powered with a dual-core 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on board storage. Over at the rear, it comes with a 5MP camera that’s capable of shooting 720p videos.
The main highlight of the Xperia go is its dust and water resistant capabilities with IP67 rating. This means the device is sealed up tightly against dust and you can submerged it in water up to 1 metre for about 30 minutes. You can check out our first impression of the Xperia go in our hands-on review.
At RM999, this is similarly priced with its 3.7″ Xperia sola which also comes with similar dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB specs. What sets them apart is the higher resolution on the Xperia sola that does 854×480 and the Xperia’s go rugged water and dust resistant capabilities. If you spend more time outdoors and prone of getting yourself wet, the Xperia go is a phone worth considering.
In terms of colours, there will be 3 choices with Black being available tomorrow onwards, followed by White sometime on 16th July and the striking yellow to be available later in Q3. After the Xperia go, we are anticipating more Xperia models to come into Malaysia such as Xperia ion and Xperia acro S which was recently announced for this region.
