It looks like the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc will not get any US carrier support as the company has confirmed that the handset will be launching sim-free across a number of retailers at the beginning of August. There is no mention of what frequency bands the handset will support, however we suspect this will be aimed at AT&T and T-Mobile customers.

We already thought the handset was selling at the Sony Store for $599.99 in Midnight Blue colour, however it looks like that link now takes you to a pre-order page. The Misty Silver colour option will be available at,, and for a similar price. It’s a shame that no carrier has picked up the handset, but it shows how cutthroat the market has become and that most carriers appear to be pushing dual-core smartphones at this price point.
