Sony Ericsson also launched another smartphone based on Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS called the ‘Xperia active’ at the recent press event.

Internally it’s based on an 1GHz Snapdragon processor and has a 3″ capacitative touch screen which supports wet finger tracking as well.

There are also some specific UI add-ons to the Android OS like the four corner home screen to allow quick access to commonly used apps. Also it has supports for the ANT+ Bluetooth standard to be able to connect to various fitness devices and sensors.
