Sony Ericsson Unveils Xperia Arc S

Considering that we haven’t heard much out of SE the past few days save for a few rumored devices, we’re delighted to see that they’re showing off their latest device: The Xperia Arc S. Before we get into the specs, I just have to say that I hope Sony Ericsson doesn’t follow the path of Samsung, with devices named Galaxy Q and Galaxy R with their Xperia Arc series. Now then, onto the interesting part:

  • 1.4GHz “turbo” processor
  • 4.2-inch 854 x 480 LED display with Mobile Bravia Engine
  • MicroHDMI out
  • Ability to take screenshots
  • 8.7mm thin
  • Curved design
  • Gingerbread
  • 8MP,  3D camera (more on that in a bit)
  • 512MB of RAM
  • Available in Pure White, Gloss Black, Misty Silver, Midnight Blue, and Sakura Pink for the ladies

Now, about the camera. The idea here is that the 8MP camera can take photos in 3D (SE used “panorama” quite a lot in the description of the photos). But since the Arc S’s screen isn’t a 3D display, the images are shown in 2D. When the device is plugged up to a 3D-capable TV via the MicroHDMI port, they’re shown as 3D photos. So you can (sort of) take 3D photos, but you won’t be able to view them without a 3D TV. The concept of a 3D camera on a non-3D device baffles us, but we’ll leave such judgments to you.

No word on pricing or a release date, but we’ll keep you posted as more news comes in. So, who’s excited about the Xperia Arc S? Anyone else confused by the 3D concept? Drop a comment below!
