Coming Soon – Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc on Three.

Three will be ranging the Sony Ericsson Arc from April. At just 8.7mm thin, it’s one of the slimmest mobile phones on the market, but the Arc’s petite frame masks a big technology offering. The Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA engine supports the 4.2” touchscreen for clearer and crisper pictures, while Google’s Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) is at its heart.

Sylvia Chind Head of Branded Devices said, “The Sony Ericsson Arc is a great addition to Three’s range of smartphones. The HD Video recording capability is particularly impressive with its Exmor R™ sensor and other multimedia features – such as a face detection feature – allowing you to take, watch and share high quality movies. And our award winning 3G network will ensure Three customers enjoy the mobile internet experience at its best.”

Key features:

  • 8.7mm thick
  • 4.2” capacitive touch screen with Reality Display and Mobile BRAVIA engine
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 8.1mp camera
  • HD Video Recording (720p/30fps) with Face Tracking
  • HDMI Connectivity
  • 1GHz processor

Three is rated as the best network for speed, overall quality, ease of use and customer satisfaction by UK Smartphone customers (YouGov), something which Sony Ericsson Arc users will enjoy.

Information on pricing and availability will be announced soon. In the mean time, why not take a peek at Three’s blog for a sneak preview or the coming soon page for more information.
