Is Sony Ericsson ready to get back in the Android game ?
Just recently at CES 2011, Sony Ericsson revealed a new high-end Android phone XPERIA arc. Besides very thin case, it will come with Gingerbread Android 2.3 OS. Some of the specs include:
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- Camera 8.1MP, HDMI connector
- Screen 854x480 pixels on 4.2" 16,777,216 colour TFT, LED backlit
- Memory microSD™ (supported to 32GB) + -- Phone memory Up to 512MB
- Size 125.0 x 63.0 x 8.7 mm / 117g
We must recall the moment X10 was announced, SE failed to deliver the final product to the market, and then it became outdated, with old Android version. This could be big for Sony Ericsson. The device looks great, and it was even noticed with Android 2.4 at CES, which was later dismissed. The guys at Engadget and Swedroid got a chance to play with it and we have official videos as well. We have to wait a bit and see ourselves are the screen and camera that great as they say…
