Sony Ericsson demo XPERIA Arc Exmor R photography prowess [Video]

Sony Ericsson has been talking more about the camera tech in the new XPERIA Arc, its 8.1-megapixel shooter capable of HD video recording. What makes the Arc special isn't the number of megapixels, though, but the back-illuminated sensor, using Sony's Exmor R tech, and its f/2.4 aperture value, which add up to improved low-light performance. We'll have to wait and see how exactly the XPERIA Arc performs in the real-world to know for sure, but the smartphone could well end up one of the best Android devices for photography. Incidentally, the HD video of the Arc below was actually shot by another Arc, so it's a useful way to see the video quality as well. [youtube 7RdNfff_-0g]

Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc to Feature Unlimited Points Touch Screen

First be sure to take a peek at Sony Ericsson's XPERIA Arc in our hands-on video, then come back and take notice at something that may be freaking awesome - the possibility of a massively multi-touch screen handled by a Cypress TrueTouch-digitizer. This group has three kinds of digitizers in it's TrueTouch family, the CY8CTMAxxx, CY8CTMGxxx and CY8CTSTxxx. The first is a Multi-Touch All-Point which can withstand up to 32 simultaneous loading points - this is the one they found in the TGBUS teardown. Do you know what that means?

XPERIA Mini Model Line Continuation Confirmed by Sony Ericcson

So you like yourself a little bit of XPERIA with your Sony Ericsson, eh? How about a very tiny amount? How about one that's so small, they call it a mini? More minis for everyone! Sony Ericsson has spoken with Pocket Lint about their future over the next 12 months, and Mini is up on the bill. Not only did they, (meaning of course Steven Walker, (acting) head of global marketing at Sony Ericsson,) reveal that there'll be Minis, but they plan on expanding upon all Xperia lines and ranges they had in 2010 through 2011. Exciting and hooray!

Sony Ericsson Admits to a Bad Year, Promises an Awesome 2011

So it seems as though Pocket Link got a moment or two of Steve Walker, acting Global Head of Marketing for Sony Ericsson who said that the company learned "a huge amount last year" (meaning 2010) and that “The first generation of handsets in our portfolio was about getting the capability out there." He goes on to say what "went wrong" with Sony Ericsson this year and what they planned on doing next year. It's all so simple!
