I cant wait, the best!!! AWESOME!!! Very Balance SE Smartphone original style, the rest iphone wanna be style
Ilse, 08 Jan 2011People make a fuss about things such as where the headphone jack is placed and a second camera... moreWell first of all yes this is a sexy phone but seriously flawed in terms of design.The thinnest point is at the center of the phone so unless its made of aluminium or something i can see how it wont be a big surprise that if you accidentally sit on it the phone will snap in half.The headphone jack placement IS is the wrong place since unless your headphone has a curved 90* port its highly likely that you can damage the port/jack just by taking the phone in and out of your jeans or something.
So this phone definately has a big "USE WITH CAUTION" sign all over it.
Oh am an SE fan btw...briliantly sexy phone overall just not there yet.
nick, 08 Jan 2011why buy this instead of a galaxy s or nexus s?
the screen is LCD, and if you've already own... morehummingbird GPU is 3x more powerful than the adreno200 in the first gen snapdragon.
this phone has the adreno 205 inside..and the overal chip proved to be faster than the galaxy s (HTC desire HD), with similar graphic performance.
Also, the Arc is currently the highest benchmarked single core handset.
Also, it has by far the best camera on any android device.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, it's screen is backlit LCD(same technology like the Retina and LG's nova displays), which in combination with Bravia engine really blows all others out of the water in the video play department
AND, in comparison with SUPERAMOLED, it is "up to 25 percent more efficient"
According to this guy:
finally a brand new XPERIA that have it all, without inconvenient compromises
awaiting the official launch date
why buy this instead of a galaxy s or nexus s?
the screen is LCD, and if you've already owned a super-amoled screen, you will never go back.
also the GPU in the galaxy s and the nexus s is already 3x more powerful than the one in the snapdragon proccessor.
old technology in SE phones? nothing ever changes.
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2011Dream on... On your dual core.. Hahai'm not dreaming i know it for a fact you noob.
Qualcomm and SE have a major partnership contract.
The Xperia x10 was the first handset announced to run with the first gen of 1GHZ snapdragon.
The first dual core Snapdragon (1.2 GHZ MSM8260) was announced from Qualcomm to start shipping in q3 2010 but was postponed for q1 2011..this is the reason why SE was delaying with it's flagship phone, and the reason why the Playstation phone was dragging on so long(it was in development much earlier than the other upcoming Xperias) - delay of next gen sbapdragon chip manufacturing.
So in the case of Playstation phone SE finally decided to use the backup solution - second generation single core snapdragon with the adreno 205 GPU (still enough for today's portable gaming demands)
But the real, production ready 3rd generation dual core snapdragon premiere will be in Barcelona with the Xperia Duo.
im thinking when i have this phone in my hand , i can make very goodphotos & videos , screen will shine , very appropriate on hand , listening music, check my E-mail and much much more , Xperia Arc My Phone .
2 problems: bluetooth v2.1 and no front camera, but its very Beautiful, other features are great and that problems don't matter
It's awsome. Can't wait for it's official release.Sony Ericsson Deserves a big round of clap for all it's fan..!!!Good Job SE.
in rumour was state there was secondary camera and its great...but now there no secondary camera same like xperia x10..why sony always not included secondary camera...hey its that hard..its 2011..
i thought there was a secondary camera. according to early leak or rumors there is a secondary camera, or its a notification light that looks like a sec. cam. just like x10.
audiojunk, 08 Jan 2011Yeah...i think the placement of the headphone jack should be the top or the bottom...they alwa... moreBlackberry places their audio jack on the side of their phones. I don't see anyone complaining about them, and their phones are rapidly growing in popularity here in my city - Lagos.
Just an example.
