very eager to have the updates. the arc users with complaints regarding fast draining battery life, if you can find the right way to use the task manager, you will agree with me that it is more efficient than the iphones.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is really a great Phone as everybody admits but I really repents for buying this phone the great problem I face is with the Sim card no Sim cards with capacity below 64k is not working in this hand set hence this phone limits the customers choice to choose a provider in India. To my experience the following Indian providers 32k Sim not works in this hand set BSNL, Vodafone, Idea, Videocon,etc don't work in this handset anticipating similar customers reviews.

Nokia N97 was better operating times, is true, but would you want one?
I don't think so...
Apart from that, this is one the greats phones I ever seen! All works nice and smooth and the phone is so stylish!
