There’s no two ways about it, the Sony Ericsson Arc is one of the best looking phones to be announced at CES this year. It’s got a huge 4.2-inch BRAVIA display touchscreen, an HDMI output, and an elegantly curved chassis.
And here’s the arc that gives the phone its name. Whether it really makes an ergonomic difference, as claimed by Sony Ericsson, is debatable, but it adds to the looks. At it’s thinnest part, the ‘waist’ of the phone, the Sony Ericsson Arc is just 8.7mm thick.
Like previous Xperia phones, it features Sony Ericsson’s Timescape interface. This displays all your communications – Twitter, Facebook, email – as one stream, designed to look like a deck of cards.
