Xperia Z is waterproof up to 3 feet

When it comes to innovation in the mobile electronics space, Sony was once at the head of the class. Now, however, not many people think of Sony as an innovator or a maker of must-have mobile products. That honor usually is bestowed on wares from Apple and Samsung.
 
However, Sony is looking to get back some of its mojo back and proudly displayed its latest Xperia "superphones" at CES. The Xperia Z and Xperia ZL both use a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot), 5" 1080p display (443 ppi), a 13MP camera with HDR video capabilities (thanks to its Exmor RS image sensor), and a front-facing 2MP camera for video conferencing.


Xperia Z
 
The Xperia Z takes things a step further by being waterproof at depths up to three feet for up to 30 minutes (it meets IP55 and IP57 military specifications). It features an all-glass construction that brings back "shattering" flashbacks to the iPhone 4/4S.
 
The Xperia ZL has a smaller footprint (LxW) than the Xperia Z, but is 0.08 inches thicker and forgoes the all-glass construction for a matte plastic finish. The Xperia ZL also includes a physical shutter button that the Xperia Z had to ditch to maintain its waterproof capabilities, and an IR blaster so that you can use the phone as a universal remote.

Although the Xperia Z is supposed to launch during Q1 2013, we don’t have any information on pricing. Likewise, the Xperia ZL will have a more limited rollout and we don’t know if it will even make it to the United States.

Sony Gives Diving

I think the title should read: "Sony Goes Diving" instead of "Sony Gives Diving"

Remember, though, that each DT article is required to contain at least two obvious typographical errors and one bit of jarring wording. Brandon satisfies the former requirement with the title plus "Sony is looking to get back some of its mojo back," and does a good job on the latter with "the forefront of prominence."

The real kudos, however, go to Jason, the overachiever, who consistently exceeds these requirements by adding at least one content error.

While there are typically errors, I don't think you actually read the article, or had trouble with 2nd grade logic. Right now, somebody visually impaired might have better hearing, but with a silent car, there is no way to hear them, hence they get hit! This makes perfect sense to me.

As for the grammer police, maybe go visit a grammer website, and you can correct each other all day. Nobody really cares.

You know, I use to think all of these comments about grammar and spelling to be a DT only problem...but quite often, I see these same typographical errors on all sorts of "respected" news sites - Forbes, Associated Press, Reuters, WSJ, etc.

I'm not trying to give them a break mind you, just pointing out that it's not only DT, but most online 'news' sites - I'm wondering if the editorial process is different for online articles in comparison to paper prints...
