Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S and Xperia Pro Coming to UK Soon
Two Android-powered smartphones announced by Sony Ericsson are coming to the UK soon. Both are from the Xperia line, so I’m sure many of us were waiting for them impatiently.
The first is the long awaited Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S, Midnight Blue and Pure White versions of which have been available for pre-order for some time. The phone will be shipped on September 30, after only a week, and the pre-order price of the unlocked and SIM-free version was £349.99. Don’t know if it will change after the release, but if you’re not in a hurry to get this gorgeous smartphone, wait for a couple of weeks – I’m sure its price will drop when some UK mobile operators start selling it, too. Just keep an eye on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S deals online.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc review), coming with a 4.2-inch capacitive touchscreen with a LED-backlit and 854 x 480 resolution and a 1.4GHz processor (instead of the original Xperia Arc’s 1GHz one). It also boasts an 8.1MP camera with auto-focus and LED flash, also armed with continuous auto-focus, video light and video stabilizer and able to shoot 720p videos at 30fps. 512MB of RAM with 1 GB of ROM and 8GB of internal memory, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and, of course, Android 2.3 Gingerbread make it a really cool smartphone.
The second phone coming to the UK is the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro that was announced long ago – back in February at MWC. You can find pre-orders for the phone (asking £322.80 for it, which is a bit expensive, I think), promising to start shipping it on October 6.
The Xperia Pro has a smaller display than the Xperia Arc S (3.7 inches against 4.2!), though the resolution is the same 480 x 854, which means the display is clear and bright. Plus it has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon 1 GHz processor with 512MB of RAM and 1GB of internal memory. The camera is 8MP with auto-focus, LED flash and a number of other useful features. And of course it runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
So if you want to buy a new Android smartphone, have a look at these two Sony Ericsson smartphones. Those who prefer slim phones will surely like the stylish Xperia Arc S; as for those who like QWERTY keyboards… the Xperia Pro will soon be there for you! Wait before October 6 to get its SIM-free version or wait a bit more and grab it cheaper with different Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro deals.
