    i've been using an xperia acro S for a while now and been happy to leave it in the map portion of the tank bank when it's sluicing down. Just have to remember to make sure the rubber bungs are seated in all of the holes and not to take them out if it's dusty.

    yep, got acro S too, last september., extra sd slot, usb, hdmi out, NFC, the whole thing.

    you dont replace an iphone with xperia, you crush it and show how much better xperia is.

    I am hoping Apple gets wise and makes the iPhone 6 fully ruggedized and waterproof. The list of waterproof smartphones is growing beyond the Experia Z (which looks great)
    - Kyocera Hydra
    - Samsung Galaxy Xcover2
    - Panasonic Eluga
    - Babiken Rock V5 (never heard of them???)
    - Casio G'zOne Commando C771
    - Motorola Defy XT

    any others to consider???

    I'm thinking my next upgrade is a "Liquipelled" iPhone 5. If only I hadn't ponied up $140 for a Touratech iPhone 4-only motorcycle mount!!!
