Vodafone UK has joined fellow carrier Three in confirming that it will be offering the Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc, though we don’t yet know an exact release date. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone has a capacious 4.2-inch BRAVIA-branded touchscreen, 8.1-megapixel camera and HD video capture.

There’s also an HDMI port, despite the Arc measuring just 8.7mm at its thinnest point. More hands-on feedback on the XPERIA ArcĀ here.
