Sony Ericsson launches slimmest mobile

Mobile phone manufacture Sony Ericsson has unveiled their latest flagship mobile phone, the Xperia Arc – with the slimmest case seen on a smartphone.

The newest Xperia handset in the SE arsenal arrives with an 8.7mm chassis - at its thinnest point - which is much slimmer than the last winner of the svelte smartphone crown - the iPhone 4, with its 9.3mm case.

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc was announced at Las Vegas’ consumer electronics show, with a 4.2-inch multi touch reality screen with a mobile Bravia engine for more of a vivid colour display with less reflection in bright light.

Also on board is the Sony Exmor R technology, which backs up the 8.1 megapixel camera that allows high quality picture capture even in poor lighting conditions.

The newest Xperia handset gains its name from the Arc in the body of the phone, where the mobile takes its place as their flagship handset and effectively replaces last year’s Xperia X10 mobile.

SE Xperia Arc will arrive running Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3, with Sony Ericsson application’s such as TimeScape, a 1Ghz processor, an 8GB microSD card, with a camera capable of HD video capture that’s displayable through the built in microHDMI port.

Sony Ericsson has confirmed the Arc is just the first of many new mobile phones in the Xperia range, where One Mobile Ring expects more of the line-up will be unveiled at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress next month – with the Arc just being as taster of what’s to come.
