Sony Xperia Z1: Totally Not Afraid Of Toilets

My Uncle Charles had a lifelong fear of toilets. Maybe it was due to that unfortunate incident with a water moccasin and his “dangling plums” as he called them. I’m not sure. These days most people fear toilets for their magnetic pull on smartphones—one of the worst ways to end a call. But the Xperia Z1 laughs in the face of fecal water, as Sony’s forthcoming device is waterproof up to nearly 5 feet. The other noteworthy thing about this phone, aside from its slick, 5-inch Full HD screen, is the 20..7 megapixel camera. Just think of the clarity in those um, underwater shots!

Sony Xperia Tablet Z: Skinny Love

A lot of tablet makers are seemingly afraid to take on the iPad, choosing to go low-budget instead of high-performance. But Sony appears willing to pick a fight with Apple courtesy its new Xperia Tablet Z. Normally us skinny guys aren’t exactly big brawlers, but when it comes to tablets, slim wins. The Z weighs in at just 1.09 pounds and at just 0.27 inches thick, it currently owns the crown for world’s thinnest. The 10.1-inch 1080p display is powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM while running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. But the toughness doesn’t stop there. Like the Xperia Z smartphone Sony announced at CES, the Xperia Tablet Z is also waterproof and dustproof. That means you can spill pickle juice on it and umm, leave it under your couch for 11 weeks?

Sony Xperia Z: 5 Inches Of Stay-Dry Sexy

One of the sexier smartphones to show up at CES 2013 is Sony’s new Xperia Z. The flagship handset features a 5-inch screen, 1080p display, quad-core processing, and 13-megapixel camera, all wrapped up in a slick, hyper-flat chassis with a glass backing. Taking decent photos and video in low light should be easier with the camera’s HDR mode. So yeah, odds are this phone will induce its share of drooling. Good thing Sony’s engineers thought ahead and made it water-resistant.
