I Hope you're getting paid well for that "HTC skydiver transparent page advert".

Is Sony taking the piss? Enter two loo-friendly Xperia smartphones, launched over here today but already on sale in Japan, which won't be spoiled by unanticipated drops into the bog.

If you must put your junk on there, just make it possible to get rid of the bloody things.
