Back in January at CES 2011 event, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has launched officially and acquired much attention from the crowds. But we still don’t have the specific info about when it will hit the U.S. markets. Due to the tragic Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan, the production of the SE Xperia Arc is slowed down.
According to the SE Product Blog, Xperia Arc is set to release in the U.S. this summer. There is no word whether it will hit the AT&T or T-Mobile. As AT&T was the telecom provider for Xperia X10, the Xperia Arc also will be launched by the same carrier.
Sony Ericsson Xperia arc packing in a curved body(8.7mm thin) with a huge multi touch Reality Display measuring 4.2 inches with 854 x 480 pixels (FWVGA) resolution and its image quality has been enhanced by the new Mobile BRAVIA Engine and the device is running with the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, equipped with a 1 GHz processor and an 8.1 Megapixels camera with Exmor R for mobile sensor for HD videos, HDMI connector, TrackID music recognition app, a NeoReader barcode scanner, Wi-Fi, 3G, HSPA, DLNA and a whole host of Google services, with phone memory of 512MB with micro-SD slot for 32GB expansion and so on.
This is what the SE Product Blog has answered to the users who have enquired about the Xperia Arc launch:
“I just got something from my US colleagues and the current plan is to have an “a”-variant available at retailers this summer. This version will be optimized for use in the US (GSM/UMTS). I’ll keep you posted as I get more details.”
