Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc preview: First look

Close window

Sony Ericsson is back at it and they are pushing pedal to the metal with their latest unusually curved and unusually streamlined sports car – the XPERIA Arc. Once one of the top three phone manufacturers, Sony Ericsson has been through some hard times but the company underwent a painful restructuring and it found a way to make its handsets desirable again by focusing on the high-end segment and staking on Android OS. The XPERIA X10 did a lot to repair the company public image and it’s now up to the Arc to improve it even further.

The waistline has also been slimmed down and the new interestingly curved design adds another touch of class to the Arc. Now add the microHDMI port and the same capable camera as on the X10 and you get the idea that the Arc is a powerful beast indeed.
So, with high hopes and eagerness we are stepping into the hardware part of this preview. Join us after the break.
