Xperia arc hits UK pre-order, points to April release

in Xperia arc


Play.comThe 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.

  • Gregorian

    As a comparison the LG Optimus X2 is on the same site for £469.99.
    Dual Core, front facing camera. Not quite as pretty though. Not quite as good a screen. Only Froyo…

    So, hmmm…

    price is a bit cheaper then I expected. I was thinking £500 that how much I paid for my X1. yes thats right not X10 but X1. X10 i got on upgrade from T-Mobile. I think I will go for generic this time Idont want to wait for carrier update

    BOA NOITE! PRIMEIRAMENTE ANTES DE EXPOR MINHA CRITICA, QUERO PARABENIZAR A SONY ERICSSON PELO XPERIA ARC, PELO QUE LI E VI, ELE SERÁ UM DOS TOPS NOS SMARTS, E A CONCORRÊNCIA FICARÁ PREOCUPADA.
    BOM, MAS O QUE EU QUERO MESMO FALAR É SOBRE A MINHA GRANDE TRISTEZA QUE SENTI HOJE, FIQUEI MUITO, MAS MUITO TRISTE MESMO…
    NA EMPRESA AONDE TRABALHO, QUE DE MEU IRMÃO E MINHA CUNHADA, UMA EMPRESA DE CALHAS, ELES TÊM UM CONTRATO COM A VIVO EMPRESA JÁ ALGUNS ANOS… E TODO ANOS SEMPRE ESCOLHEMOS APARELHOS NOKIA, OS BONS PARA MIM E PARA ELES, E OS MAIS SIMPLES PARA OS FUNCIONÁRIOS, MAS TODOS DA NOKIA….
    COMO JÁ HÁ ALGUM TEMPO EU FIQUEI FASCINADO PELA SONY ERICSSON, E AINDA MAIS QUANDO TINHA LANÇADO O XPERIA X10, FIQUEI VIDRADO NELE, SEMPRE FALAVA DELE PARA MEU IRMÃO E MINHA CUNHADA…
    COMO TODO ANO (EM JANEIRO) FAZEMOS A TROCA DOS APARELHOS AI ESSE ANO DEI A IDÉIA DE PEGAR O XPERIA X10, PRA EXPERIMENTAR E TENTAR MUDAR PRA SONY ERICSSON, AI QUE FIQUEI MUITO TRISTE E COM MUITA VERGONHA, BEM NA HORA DE FECHAR O PEDIDO FIQUEI SABENDO QUE O XPERIA X10 NÃO TINHA SUPORTE PARA VÍDEO CHAMADA, AI ELES FICARÃO OLHANDO COM UMA CARA FEIA PRA MIM E DISSERAM – COMO VOCÊ FALAVA BEM DESSE XPERIA X10, QUE ELE ERA UM SUPER CELULAR E TAL, MAS SE NEM TEM VÍDEO CHAMADA….
    EU DISSE ASSIM, É CLARO QUE ELE É UMA MEGA CELULAR, DESIGNER INOVADOR, SISTEMA MUITO BOM, TUDO DE BOM, PRINCIPALMENTE O BRANCO, MAS… O QUE DIZER DE QUE A SONY ERICSSON LANÇA UM MEGA CELULAR E NÃO COLOCA SUPORTE PARA VÍDEO CHAMADA…..
    EU NÃO SABIA O QUE DIZER MESMO… FIQUEI QUIETO E ESCOLHEMOS NOVAMENTE APARELHOS NOKIA…
    SEI QUE TODO MUNDO ERRA, MAS…
    ESPERO MUITO QUE O ARC SEJA TUDO ISSO QUE A SONY ERISSON DIZ E MOSTRA, SEI QUE IRÁ SER, MAS ATÉ EU PROVAR PRA ELES ISSO VAI DEMORAR, POIS O ARC SERÁ LANÇADO EM JUNHO EM 2011, MAS NÃO VOU PODER COMPRA-LO NESSE PERÍODO POR NÃO GANHAR O SUFICIENTE PARA ISSO, SÓ PODEREI MOSTRAR À ESSE EM JANEIRO DE 2012, QUANDO IREMOS TROCAR NOVAMENTE OS APARELHOS…
    QUERO MUITO QUE ESSA MINHA MENSAGEM CHEGUE NA OUVIDORIA OU PARA ALGUÉM QUE POSSA ME DAR UMA RESPOSTA CONFORTANTE, PELO MENOS PRA EU NÃO FICAR DESANIMADO.

    ME CHAMO VITOR FARDIM
