As its name implies, the Xperia active is aimed at sporty types, so is dust- and water-resistant, has a 3in scratch-resistant multi-touch screen with wet finger tracking, and a 5MP camera with HD functionality. Wi-fi and DLNA are included.

It's also pre-loaded with sports apps that enable users to track their fitness levels.

Finally the Sony Ericsson txt is – yes, you guessed it – designed for ardent texters. It has a full Qwerty keyboard, a 'friends' app for Facebook and Twitter, wi-fi, 2.6in display and 3.2MP camera. It's available in white, black, pink and blue.
