Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S gets priced and dated by UK retailer

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.

  • Imo this is the best looking phone on the market. Next to the Droid 3
  • Does Sony really have a clue? How does this keep up with the competition?
  • I think all sony erricson handsets have a nice look, but the best looking phone has to be the htc sensation
  • Still cant believe they neglected the FFC on their top tiered model yet put it on the Neo.............
  • I dont know about radios or anything but if i get this phone or the og arc for tmobile usa,would i be able to use it on "4g?" network.
  • Sony knows how to make some nice looking phones, I just wish they had better specs.
  • I agree. The Arc is this generation's RAZR.
