So you’re itching to grapple your fingers around that spiffy new Android phone from Sony, yes? You’re in LUCK as if you’re living in the UK and you want to pre-order this lovely device, the Xperia Arc, aka Xperia X12, you can do so right this moment via Play.com for the low low price of £459.99 with free delivery if you life anywhere inside the kingdom. They note that the expected release date for this device is April 1st, 2011. Cool beans!
If you take a look back down memory river, you’ll perhaps remember the release of the Xperia X10 around this same time last year (or a bit earlier, if you want to get technical.) When that phone was on pre-order, it cost a whole £70 MORE than the one we’re looking at here today. That’s nutso! Take a ride on down to Play.com if you’d like to grab the Xperia Arc on pre-order today. If you need some more convincing, take a peek at our sister-site SlashGear’s full hands-on extperience from back during CES 2011 last month. Hotness!
Nice phone. Pity SE will never update it, so it’s not worth buying.
But it is the only one (except nexus s) to have gingerbread already installed. And why are you so sure that update won’t happen when se removed mediascape and change timescape into widget so that updates will be easier than x10?
