AT&T-friendly Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc now shipping from Sony Store

The Sony Ericsson's flagship phone, the Xperia Arc, has quietly made its way onto Sony's US store, priced at $599.99. There's no mention of any specific carrier, but the specs list it as running on AT&T's 3G bands -- 850MHz/1900MHz/2100MHz.

This will be the first opportunity for folks in the US to (officially) get hold of an Arc that'll play nicely with a domestic carrier's 3G network. The phone has been available in Europe since April, but imported units are limited to 2G connectivity over EDGE in the US. Right now there's no mention of the Arc on AT&T's official site, so for the moment there's no carrier-subsidized option for this device.

  • Everybody forgets Canada. It's been for sale at Rogers for some time now, same North America friendly 850/1900/2100 UMTS version as above.
  • $599 for an outdated phone? hmmmm
  • I'm waiting to blow some cash on a Vita... not anything resembling something like this.
  • WOW! And I thought the Xperia Play took a long time to make it to Verizon. The ARC should have been in AT&T's line up months ago.Too late to offer this at full retail and expect great sales.
  • i really like how it has physical buttons.
