Sony Ericsson has officially launched the Xperia Arc Android smartphone we posted about earlier and, besides the specs and all the candy, we told you it will be available in two colors: Midnight Blue which you saw up until now in the renders and Misty Silver which you’ll meet now.
We must admit that the Misty Silver version pictured is indeed sexy and it adds to the appeal brought in by the 1 GHz Qualcomm processor, 4.2-inch TFT Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine running FWVGA (854 x 480) resolution protected by shatter proof sheet on scratch-resistant mineral [...]
Looks like Android 2.4 will not be Honeycomb after all, but, in fact, it could still be Gingerbread and the version bump from 2.3 to 2.4 might bring a minor update of the same mobile platform.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc which was recently launched was caught in the wild running version 2.4 of Android, which Tweakers.net claim is still Gingerbread. In the introduction they mention that both Android 2.0 and Android 2.1 were called Eclair and that 2.3 and 2.4 could be indeed wearing the Gingerbread name.
While it is still unknown when exactly Android 2.4 Gingerbread will [...]
As Sony Ericsson gets ready to show off its gear at the CES, one of the banners the company has produced for the show reveals a mysterious sliver of a phone, possibly one of the thinnest we’ve ever seen.
The most revealing aspect of the image is that black spot on the phone’s side. Taking a close-up look, it appears to have a beveled edge leading into an open cavity. Call us crazy, but that looks like a conspicuous headphone jack. Keeping in mind that a headphone connector is only 3.5 millimeters wide, and you can appreciate just how thin this Sony Ericsson model [...]
Sony Ericsson has confirmed that it will be announcing “new members of the Xperia family” at February’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, in a press invitation to its Sunday, February 13th presentation. As we reported earlier this week, the company recently filed trademarks for four Xperia brands: Xperia Play, Xperia Neo, Xperia Arc, and Xperia Duo; while the first branding likely refers to the upcoming PlayStation Phone, codenamed Zeus, the other three are just as mysterious now as before. We do know that the manufacturer has an X10 followup known as Anzu in [...]
Sony Ericsson has recently filed for European Union trademarks on four Xperia brandings, including one — “Xperia Play” — that sounds like it could be the retail name of the company’s not-so-secret gaming smartphone. We’d initially heard that the so-called PlayStation phone would hit shelves as the Xperia Z1 — an homage to its Zeus codename, apparently — but it would make sense for the joint venture to follow other manufacturers’ leads and drop the confusing alphanumeric model numbers for catchy, easy-to-remember brands like Galaxy [...]
