The Sony Ericsson Xperia arc has finally appeared for UK pre-order. Those looking to pick-up the handset sim-free will have to splash-out £459.99 according to Play.com. Whilst this does sound a bit steep, it’s worth remembering that the Xperia X10 was £70 more expensive when it first came up for pre-order over a year ago.
The listing does not give any indication what colour you would be pre-ordering, but the picture is that of the Midnight Blue handset. The site has also given an indication of a release date, pointing to April 1st. This would put it in line with the release date we were told (towards end of Q1/early Q2). What are your thoughts on price? Do you think it’s too expensive or pretty much as you expected? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
