But with Sony’s recent buyout, by the time this phone lands in February (if the rumours are true), it’ll likely be known as the Sony Xperia Arc HD. Enough semantics – time for some specs.</p> <p>The Arc HD will be packing Google's new Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS. We’d hope so if it’s coming out in February.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/phone/rumour-mill/sony-xperia-arc-hd-leaked </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sony-ericsson/sony-xperia-arc-hd-leaked/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sony-ericsson/sony-xperia-arc-hd-leaked/news#comments Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Fri, 04 Nov 2011 12:19:05 +0000 Luke Edwards 418666 at http://www.stuff.tv Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc http://www.stuff.tv/sony-ericsson/sony-ericsson-xperia-arc/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Can the ultra-slim Xperia Arc put Sony Ericsson back among the Android leading pack? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="2000" height="3500" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-Arc-Main.jpg?1364298774" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="3500" height="2000" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-Arc-Angle.jpg?1364298774" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="2000" height="7000" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-Arc-Profile.jpg?1364298774" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="2000" height="2000" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Sony-Ericsson-Xperia-Arc-Rear.jpg?1364298774" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="228" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Sony-Eric-Xperia-Arc-Hands3.jpg?1364298774" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Sony-Eric-Xperia-Arc-Hands1_0.jpg?1364298774" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="317" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Sony-Eric-Xperia-Arc-Hands2.jpg?1364298774" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Until now, Sony Ericsson’s flagship Android smartphone was the alarmingly under-powered Xperia X10, running on version 2.1 of the OS and only recently updated with multi-touch.</p> <p>That leaves the new Xperia Arc with a lot of ground to make up, but fortunately it’s up to the challenge. There’s the latest 2.3 Gingerbread OS, a seriously slim profile and Sony’s picture-enhancing Mobile Bravia Engine software for photo and video playback.</p> <p><strong>Slim curves</strong></p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £430.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper brightcove-player-wrapper"> <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/BrightcoveExperiences.js"></script> <script src="http://admin.brightcove.com/js/APIModules_all.js"></script> <div class="brightcove-player"> <object id="myExperience-802768444001" class="BrightcoveExperience"> <param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /> <param name="playerID" value="" /> <param name="playerKey" value="AQ~~,AAAAEgPmGlk~,Fzd-TvXcznw-P3piHaryQBMeIzWITldz" /> <param name="isVid" value="true" /> <param name="isUI" value="true" /> <param name="dynamicStreaming" value="true" /> <param name="@videoPlayer" value="802768444001" /> <param name="autoStart" value="" /> <param name="htmlFallback" value="true" /> <param name="includeAPI" value="true" /> <param name="templateLoadHandler" value="brightcoveTemplateLoaded" /> <param name="width" value="640px" /> <param name="height" value="360px" /> </object> <!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.

The first of the next-gen Xperia handsets is ready to undertake some damage control in order to help us forget the failings of the previous Xperia range that was notoriously riddled with bulky form factors, cheap build quality and late software updates.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div

revamped Xperia X10, but from the moment you pick it up you'll soon realise the newest edition to the Xperia range is slimmer (8.7mm thin at its slimmest point), lighter and a darn sight sexier than the X10.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd">

Android-fuelled handset for a quick once over. After dropping off the pace with the good but not great Xperia X10, the Japanese Swedish outfit is hoping the arc will put them back with the smartphone leaders. Early signs suggest the manufacturer might just have rediscovered its mojo.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/ces/hands-on/hands-on-%E2%80%93-sony-ericsson-xperia-arc </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sony-ericsson/hands-%E2%80%93-sony-ericsson-xperia-arc/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/sony-ericsson/hands-%E2%80%93-sony-ericsson-xperia-arc/news#comments Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc Thu, 06 Jan 2011 00:00:00 +0000 admin 15476 at http://www.stuff.tv Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc shows up http://www.stuff.tv/sony-ericsson/sony-ericsson-xperia-arc-shows/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Next generation of Xperias will have better build, screens and software </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="440" height="901" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/218380a78bli.jpg?1364403390" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="440" height="76" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/194370c3cbli_86.jpg?1364403390" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>It’s fair to say that Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Android phones have lacked the lustre of some of their peers – bulky form factors, cheap materials and delayed upgrades made for a pretty clumsy package.
