Xperia arcSony Ericsson officially announced the Xperia arc last night. The specs, pictures and promo videos had already leaked before the announcement but it was nice to see that this seriously impressive design was real. We managed to get hands-on with the device this morning and will follow-up with some thoughts later. In the meantime, we’ve added the official specifications along with a gallery of images in the ‘Gallery’ and ‘Specifications’ tabs at the very top of the blog.

The Xperia arc will launch with Android 2.3 and comes with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and a 4.2-inch multitouch TFT display dubbed the Reality display. Sony Ericsson has also utilised Sony’s Bravia Engine technology to give clearer images. It is seriously lightweight too at just 117g and measuring 8.7mm at its thinnest point. The phone will come with an 8MP Exmore R camera sensor that makes it great for low-light shooting. The handset also comes with a built-in HDMI connector. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but the handset will be available at the end of Q1.

    sexy fone. would love to buy it, but seeing what they did to us with x10 and the fact that arc lacks front cam…..
    not so sure anymore!

    Worst thing that can happen for a product. After 10 months X10 is dumped. Donno what happens to Arc, given SE precedence, better to stay away from it. Sucky support they give

  • The official of Sony Ericsson said Xperia arc has Snapdragon 8250. I’m not sure it means QSD8250 or MSM8250. But I guess Xperia arc uses MSM8255, because…

    We were told today that it was running the 1GHz MSM8255 chipset…

    Sony Ericsson can go kiss my ASS. I don’t care what features this phone has and what they promise. They can go shove it. Never buying anything SE again, I learned my lesson with the X10.

    Thank you so much,Xperia blog!

  • I am just worried about the release date… They say “end of Q1 or Q2”
    >> That means, it will be released begining of Q2, but really available to us only mid or end Q2, like X-peria… They may even get one update delay when release no?

    It somehow remind me the story of the X10…
