Your life in vivid colours. Videos and stills. Show it all off on the sharp, crisp and clear 4.2" multi-touch Reality display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine. The Xperia arc Android touch phone - designed to be daring.

Reality display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine
Enhanced contrast. Richer colours. Less image noise. The Reality display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine makes the super-wide, 4.2", LED back-lit screen sharp and crisp. And through reduced light reflection, the picture stays clear when you're outdoors, too.

Getting dark?
Dusk, dawn or just a crummy old light bulb? The Exmor R for mobile sensor lets you capture high-quality, bright pictures and videos in poor light conditions.

Designed for style icons
Let your eyes go wide. The sleek curvature of the stunningly slim - just 8.7 mm - Xperia arc makes for a perfect palm-fit. This slender, strong and lightweight smartphone is built to make jaws drop.

Connect to your TV via HDMI
Connect your Xperia arc to your TV and cuddle up in the sofa. The HDMI connection lets you view pictures and videos from your phone on your TV screen using your TV remote control.

Camera power
Ready for some hard facts? Try 8.1 megapixels. Or maximum aperture of f/2.4 (in short, this means that more light reaches the image sensor). Your Xperia arc has the camera muscles you need to get great shots.

You choose - Android Market
Going out? Finding out? Or perhaps just chilling out? Download any compatible application you want from Android Market' and customise your LiveView' to make it exclusively yours.

Your life in brilliant HD

good find, voted hot, but i'm waiting for the Arc S to come down in price too
Voted hot as it's cheapest and also decent spec for the price - but are there many reasons to consider this over the £40 cheaper Xperia Play?
