Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc demo video

Sony-Ericsson-XPERIA-Arc A few weeks ago we got to see the new Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc at MWC and later at a small event in London. James and I were in attendance and we were able to record a short video of the Arc in action. We were both really impressed with the Arc, it has a wonderful display and feels like a quality piece of hardware.

Sony Ericsson have kindly given us one of their early prototype units to take a look at. In fact we’ve been lucky enough to receive one of only a handful of working prototypes currently in the UK so I’ve spent some time pawing over it in the video below which will hopefully give you a taster of what the Arc has to offer. I didn’t manage to keep the video under the 20 minutes I was aiming for but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

We’ll have a full review of the XPERIA Arc once the hardware becomes final and we’ll have a full unboxing video once we can get our hands on a retail version!
