Xperia Arc coming to O2

Mobile phone network O2 has unveiled it will be carrying the new Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, in April this year.

O2 is the first UK network to announce it will be stocking the SE flagship Xperia Arc, from the 'Coming Soon' page on their own website.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is seen as the replacement to their current flagship Xperia X10 handset, which will arrive with a 4.2-inch Reality capacitive touch display, backed by a mobile Bravia engine for better image quality whilst running from the Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS.

SE’s new lead mobile will also have an 8.1 megapixal camera and a miniHDMI port, in one of the slimmest phones seen around today – which measures just 13mm at its thinnest point.

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X10 was launched in the early part of 2010, with a 4-inch touch screen and the much older Android ‘Donut’ 1.6; although it has since been upgraded to Android ‘Éclair’ 2.1.

O2 currently retails the X10 gratis on a £35.75 a month tariff, which is accompanied by 300 minutes, an unlimited text message bundle and a 500MB data allowance.

One Mobile Ring believes the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc will be sold with the same contract, as this appears to be the standard offering as this mobile phone network’s smart phone tariff.
