Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc will launch on March 21st

Xperia-arc

Back at CES, Sony Ericsson unveiled a new Xperia model named the Xperia Arc. While the company revealed most of the details about the device back then (4.2" 854×480 screen, 1GHz Scorpion CPU, Gingerbread, 8MP camera), one major detail was missing: the release date. 

Until now, that is. Pocket-lint scored an exclusive date from Mobiles.co.uk about when the Arc will be available for purchase, and that date (according to the website) seems to be March 21st.

Personally, I'm really excited about this phone. Previous Android-powered Sony Ericsson phones have been underpowered and have run older versions of Android. But with the Arc, customers are treated to the latest version of Android and an incredible design, which kind of resembles the Nexus S. It also has Sony's new "Bravia Engine" for the display, which is purported to bring a better picture into a small screen.

  • Sony LAGiccson. Wouldn’t care if this ran off pure air and could produce enough food to cure world famine. All Sony Ericcson android devices have serious issues with their implementation. The ridiculous amounts of LAG make for a painful user expereince.

  • I agree. I reviewed the X10 a while back and it was horrendous. That said, I think better hardware and Gingerbread should clear up a few of the problems.

    And hey, you can always root the thing.

  • Actually he(sere) couldn’t be more wrong.
    Has he even bothered to watch some reviews of the Arc/Neo/Play/Pro??
    In fact they all seem to be, even in pre-release stage, among the most fluid Android phones out there – including the dual core ones.
    Heck i dont’ see even the dual core Galaxy s II monster being any faster and more fluid than the Arc/Neo.
    On contrary.
    And that says alot.
