Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S on sale now

Could this be the latest and greatest handset of the year? An iPhone and Galaxy S 2 beater?

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S isn’t just another ship in the sea from Sony’s Xperia flood, it’s the flagship.

What makes it so much more S-for-super than the original Xperia? There’s the 1.4GHz processor for a start (though sadly it's not dual-core), while the camera is an 8.1MP, 720p, Exmor R sensor driven beauty that can manage 2D and 3D conversion pics.

The fact that it comes running Gingerbread on its beautiful 4.2 Reality Display is also a big plus, even if it tries to sound like Retina Display despite its lesser – but still impressive – 233ppi resolution.

All that and its 117g super slim 8.7mm body can be yours for free on a £31 per month contract from Vodafone, right now.
