British online retailer Clove Technology is first to reveal details of pricing and availability for the Sony Ericsson's Xperia Arc S, which was announced last week at IFA in Berlin. According to an entry on its blog, Clove will sell the Arc S for £350 SIM-free, with units expected to start shipping out on Sept. 26. Clove will initially stock the Arc S in "pure white" and "midnight blue".

The Xperia Arc S is a minor hardware refresh, with a faster 1.4 GHz CPU compared to the 1 GHz chip in the original. Sony Ericsson says the more advanced CPU brings 25% faster camera start-up time, 20% faster web rendering and improved battery life. All welcome changes as far as we're concerned.

You can find pre-order links for both flavors of Arc S over at the source link.

Does Sony really have a clue? How does this keep up with the competition?
