    In this video we unbox the new Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc. The Arc feels excellent in hand and seems thinner than the iPhone 4, especially at the trough of the concave back. The XPERIA Arc is bundled with the essential items to get started. The device we are reviewing is the international unlocked (LT15i) which comes with the international wall charger, a microUSB charging/sync cable, a nice in ear Sony Ericsson branded stereo headset, and a class 2 8GB microSD card preinstalled. While the XPERIA Arc does have a micro HDMI port, regrettably there is no cable included. The battery is a ...

    We've already been pleasantly surprised to see the camera on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc in action with it's always-on auto-focus but we didn't know it takes amazing low-light pictures. Thanks to its Exmor R backlit sensor, the eight-megapixel camera on the Xperia Arc has a high light sensitivity. This means that it captures images in lower light conditions than other cameras with considerably less noise. The Exmor R technology is used by Sony on many of it's current mid to high range camcorders and cameras and now it has a mobile implementation too. Check out the samples below and let us ...

    Sony Ericsson's Xperia Arc has touched down at the FCC, providing us with a treasure-chest of pictures, technical documents, and user manuals for the upcoming Android smartphone. While there are plenty of 1GHz Android phones to compete with, the Xperia Arc has a leg up on the competition thanks to its extreme thinness and impressive auto-focus camera. We got a chance to interact with the phone at the CES earlier this year and mostly liked what we saw. According to the FCC filings, the Xperia Arc supports HSDPA and HSUPA for high-speed 3G, and will operate on UTMS bands 2 and 5, pegging the ...

Below are two HD videos captured using the Xperia Arc and they are demonstrating the continuous auto-focus feature of the smartphone's camera. While the auto-focus isn't as fast as the one you'll find on a dedicated camcorder, it definitely does a great job compared to most smartphones out there that don't even feature automatic variable focus while shooting video. The colors appear to be naturally ...

    Sony Ericsson plans to release at least four phones this year besides the four already announced, including some in the US first, according to CEO Bert Nordberg. It wasn't clear if the joint venture chief was referring to all smartphones or a mix of smart and "dumb" devices, although the revelation seemed to come during a conversation with Business Week in which Android was the primary focus. Nordberg stated that he hoped to eventually capture a full quarter of the Android market -- up from the current 14%, reportedly -- although a time frame for that goal was not given. A US-first release ...

The Unofficial Xperia X10 Blog reports that the Home Launcher is working as it should on the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Just a little bit more sluggish than on the Xperia Arc and Xperia Neo, it does indeed work and so does ...
