Sony Ericsson to launch the Xperia Arc?

sony-ericsson-xperia-arc-gagadget

The word on the street is that Sony Ericsson are to unveil a rather nice new phone tonight at CES. If true, it would appear that SE have really got there act together and produced what looks to be a super new device in the Xperia range, called the Arc.

gagadget.com released the leak earlier today and seem very confident that they have details correct. If so, then the Sony Ericsson Arc will have the following specs.

With a 1GHz Qualcomm processor, 4.2 inch 854×480 display, HD video capture and an 8 megapixel camera the Arc measures only 8.7mm at its narrowest part. Running Android 2.3 Gingerbread the device will be upgradable to Honeycomb which is a major leap forward for Sony Ericsson as long as the updates don’t take forever to arrive.

Hopefully we should get the official word from Sony Ericsson sometime tonight and we will post the official press release here in the morning.

gagadget.com have posted a video of the Sony Ericsson Arc onto Youtube. You can view the video by clicking here.
