The most technologically advanced handset in the XPERIA range from Sony Ericsson, the XPERIA Arc is due for release very soon. It promises a veritable feast of multimedia features along with a 4.2 inch touchscreen, 8 megapixel camera and the brand new Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating platform, among many other head-turning specifications. All of this is packed into the gorgeous handset which measures just 8.7mm thick. This makes it a slimmer handset than the iPhone 4, which boasted its status as the slimmest smartphone in the world.

Measuring 125mm tall by 63mm wide, it is a pocket friendly, and as mentioned, extremely slimline at just 8.7mm. It is also very lightweight at just 117 grams. The 4.2 inch LED-backlit LCD capacitive touchscreen is advanced in every way and provides amazing display quality of on screen imagery. It displays up to 16 million colours within its pixel layout of 480x 854. It comes with a wealth of features which contribute to making it one of the most advanced touchscreens available.


With an 8 GB memory card included, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc comes with a microSD card slot which can accommodate a card of up to 32 GB, allowing users to store their entire digital music collection on their phone. It also means that video files, photos, documents, games and apps are all available at the userís fingertips.

An excellent internet browsing experience is assured with the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc, thanks to both Wi-Fi and 3G coverage. The latter utilises an HSDPA connection to provide speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps, whilst Wi-Fi gives users the means to take advantage of local wireless internet networks whenever they have appropriate access. This could be in a domestic, commercial or public location thanks to the increasing number of free Wi-Fi hotspots which allow anyone to access the networks to enjoy a fast internet browsing experience. In order to connect the handset to compatible hardware devices, it comes with both Bluetooth and microUSB connections as standard.


The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is an impressive cameraphone thanks to the 8 megapixel offering located on the back of the handset. This operates at a pixel resolution of 3264x 2448, producing fantastic quality still images. The task of taking quality snapshots is somewhat simplified thanks to the inclusion of touch-focus, image stabilisation and face & smile detection. Of course, such a high spec camera can also shoot HD video footage, and this is in 720p quality.

The Android (2.3 Gingerbread) OS works alongside the widely used 1 GHz Qualcomm snapdragon processor which provides lightening fast responsiveness for a superb user experience. The Os also allows access to Android Market, whereby users can browse thousands of apps from numerous categories in order to increase the functionality and entertainment potential of the phone.

A long list of both productivity and entertainment features is included as standard, some of which is really head-turning and puts rival smartphone models to shame.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is a great looking handset, and a welcome addition to a smartphone market which is dominated by few models. For those who are looking for a new smartphone but also want something different from the norm, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is worth a closer look.
