The 10 Coolest Smartphones Of 2012

9. Sony Xperia T

Sure, Sony's Xperia T didn't create as much hype as some new smartphones did this year (looking at you, Apple). But James Bond uses it, which must naturally make it cool.

Featured in Skyfall, the latest Bond flick to hit theaters, the Xperia T is Sony's new flagship Android smartphone. In addition to supporting near-field communication and wireless charging, the Xperia T is fully water-resistant, making it ideal not only for Bond himself, but for clumsy users, too.

The Xperia T also features a 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor and a 4.5-inch scratch-resistant LCD display.
