Sony is set to launch the Xperia Z in the first quarter of 2013, a smartphone that can withstand submersion in up to 3 feet of water for 30 minutes. And while the ability to use the phone in the shower dominates the lede, the device's other features aren't shabby: a five-inch 1080p "reality" display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, LTE connectivity and 13-megapixel camera. Built-in NFC technology allows the Xperia Z to connect wirelessly to a variety of Sony products, including speakers, headphones and a new Sony Bravia television. Finally, tempered glass and anti-shatter film on both sides make the device durable and dust-resistant. The Sony Xperia Z is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2013, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
