In this video we demonstrate the software included with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. The Android Gingerbread powered Xperia Arc combines the power of the latest version of Android with the Xperia user interface. This particular device is the unlocked international smartphone (LT15i) and will most likely differ when it’s released in North America and other continents.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is running Android 2.3 Gingerbread with many applications skinned to mimic the XPERIA UI. The included Timescape app makes it easy to view status updates and messages by just swiping a finger up or down on the panels. The Xperia Arc’s video playback is optimized with the assistance of the Mobile Bravia Engine that not only displays clear and crisp video but also allows the playback of 720p HD video files. Other software titles include Asphalt 5, Let’s Golf, LiveWare Manager, Media server, a lite version of OfficeSuite, the Sony Ericsson PlayNow app, Postcard, and TrackID. The unit that is being reviewed is the Chinese Xperia Arc and has a few other Chinese apps we are not familiar with. Stay tuned for the final review coming up next.
