It has been a long time since I laid my hand on a Sony Ericsson phone. But this manufacturer certainly leaves a good impression on me. Now it looks like I will be reunited with good ‘ol SE again. I was afflicted with a bad case of “I gotta have it!” when I first saw the Xperia arc and Xperia neo in the flesh.
The latest Android smartphones from Sony Ericsson running on the latest Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) version will be available this April. Price for the high-end Xperia arc will be P29,990 while the neo will be in the 22-24K range. It seems the only big difference between the two is the bigger screen on the arc at 4.2 inches while neo’s is smaller at 3.7 inches. Otherwise, both phones share the new Reality Display technology via Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine. It’s like having a TV in your pocket!
Photos taken from the smartphone can be viewed on your home’s HD TV via the built-in HDMI connector. Both Xperia arc and neo are equipped with an 8.1 megapixel camera with auto focus, LED flash, f/2.4 lens and Sony Exmor R for mobile CMOS sensor.
