Japanese phone network Docomo have announced that they’ll be stocking Sony Ericsson’s curvy Xperia Arc. Not exactly the biggest news, but alongside misty silver and midnight blue models, Japan will get its own exclusive ‘sakura pink’ model.
We’re not sure if this is another tenuous push for more female customers, but that’s no gentle ‘sakura’ hue of pink. That’s hot, eye-bleeding pink if ever we saw it.
The Xperia Arc is a slim 8.7mm thick, but manages to cram in an 8.1-megapixel camera and high definition video recording capabilities, with Sony’s Exmor camera sensor for high quality photos and videos, even in low light.
The touch-screen will also have Sony’s Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, promising the blackest of blacks, and the whitest of whites on the 4.2-inch display.
NEC’s Medias, the newly-crowned world’s thinnest phone, which leaked last week, was also officially announced at the same time. At a mere 7.7 mm thick, and weighing only 105g, there’s still no news of seeing this phone outside of Japan. The Pink Arc has similarly not been announced for the UK just yet, but never say never; Orange will offer an exclusive black Xperia Arc when it launches.
