There was a time when buying a mobile device such as the Palm Pilot meant having a dock included in the package. Nowadays we’d seldom see smartphones packaged with docks until Sony started creating Android based Xperia phones.
I’ve owned a number of Xperia phones, the latest being the Xperia Z. One of the things I love with my Xperia Z is the fact that it’s water resistant. I don’t have to worry about getting it wet — I think all mobile phones these days should be at least water resistant. When I got my Xperia Z, the dock wasn’t available yet, at least locally.
