Sony Xperia Advance

Users around the world have felt their hearts sink at the sight of a smartphone rushing to the bottom of a sink, a pool, or -- worse yet -- a toilet.

Unless, of course, that phone is the new Sony Xperia Advance.

Scratch-proof, dust-proof and, yes, even water-proof, Sony’s smartphone is a clumsy user’s dream come true. According to the consumer electronics giant, the Xperia Advance (known as the Xperia Go outside the U.S.) is perfect for on-the-go smartphone users and resistant to even the toughest bumps and bruises, on land or off.

Despite its "ruggedized" design, the Xperia Advance still sports a dainty frame, measuring just 0.39 inches thick and touting a 3.5-inch display. A 5-megapixel fast capture camera and 1 GHz dual-core processor are also included in the phone, which runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread (but is upgradeable to Ice Cream Sandwich).
