Sony Ericsson's original Xperia arc was a great phone, winning Best European  Camera Phone from EISA, and another award for its sleek design. The arc's next iteration- the Xperia arc S was announced by Sony today in Berlin, and ups the ante over its predecessor by packing in a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and a sweep panorama camera function that has the capability of creating 3D panoramas. The phone also comes with access to Sony's Music and Video unlimited services, bringing a lot more entertainment to your device.


Here's a list of known specs for the Xperia arc S:

  • 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
  • 8.1MP Camera with Exmor R image sensor
  • 2D/3D Sweep panorama
  • 4.2" 854x480 Reality Display
  • Android 2.3.4
  • HDMI out

The Xperia arc S may not be a huge innovation by current mobile standards, but it has an impressive processor and promises to make for a nice improvement over the original arc.

    Meh. Really meh. I love my SEX Arc but I fail to see the improvement of the Arc S here. I mean the processor isn't even double core. And the news is a silly 3D panorama? Double-meh. Consumers don't care for 3D because no-one knows what to do with it.
