    [​IMG]Sony Ericsson has published the official press release for the newly announced Xperia arc S (LT18i/LT18a). The handset is armed with a single core 1.4GHz chipset (MSM8255T) and will arrive with Android 2.3.4. Sony Ericsson claims that starting up the camera is 25% faster compared to the original 1GHz Xperia arc and web page rendering should be 20% quicker.
    Apart from the chipset difference, all other specs/dimensions remain identical to the original Xperia arc. It will come with 512MB RAM and the Adreno 205 GPU. As part of the Android 2.3.4 update the handset will come with 3D Sweep Panorama, which we talked about last week, and Facebook inside Xperia 2.0 that allows you to share details about games and apps.

    Sony also announced the Sony Entertainment Network that will allow Xperia customers to get access to over 10 million music tracks from the cloud based subscription Music Unlimited service and all the latest movie releases from the on-demand Video Unlimited service.
    The Xperia arc S handset will be available globally from October 2011 and will come in five colours: Pure White, Midnight Blue, Misty Silver, Gloss Black and Sakura Pink.
