Try one with 2.2.1 update and you'll see what i'm talking about.

It's so fast and doesn't have any lag whatsoever!
You can't comapare it at all to an X10 as it's simply better.

even moto atrix with 1950 mah battery can not snatd half a day
SE waits for next generation dual core snapdragon that will be released in q2 and you should know new snapdragon is 3x faster than tegra 2 and 5x more energy efficient
so for a dual core SE phone you should wait until q2

Just take the example of motorola atrix - standby time- (250 hr) wtf...???
It's clearly visible from the specs of battery given on gsmarena & there is no doubt in it bcoz these r the official specs from side of motorola.
When the earlier android phones have been performing poor in battery life despite the great standy by time claimed by company than dual core would not even stand for half a day on single battery charge.
Let's not forget that atrix has 1930 mAh battery but still so much poor battery performance ??? That's a really alarming situation. Company's should think about battery life also , not just go blah-blah over so called dual core performance.

look at the x10.. it is the most stable android device out there.. and i believe that ARC will be the same..

Yes, Samsung got the latest, but hell.. sony got the quality!

1ghz single core (even the 1st gen snapdragon) are fast enough.. especially on android 2.2.

then dual core for what? some one may ask...
-for 1080p video recording and playback

thats it. the GPU of this device is the almost the same with the one found on dual core devices so games are not that much affected

Eldar murtazin earlier said that SE has shown him no less than 7 android devices to be launched in the 1st half of 2011. Xperia arc , play , duo , neo have been revealed till now which takes the total count to 4 but what about the other 3 or more android devices? It may not come true but i'm expecting at least one dual core device out of the other 3 android devices to be revealed in the 1st half of 2011.
