Sony-Ericsson Xperia Arc up for Pre-Order

Sony Philippines is holding a 3-day event called the Sony Summer Hotspots from March 11 – 13, 2011 at the SM Megatrade Hall 1. They will also be accepting pre-orders for the upcoming Sony-Ericsson Xperia Arc on these said dates (update: suggested retail price is Php32,750).

Revealed just last January, the Xperia Arc is a 4.2″ Android smartphone that will succeed the Xperia X10.

The Arc’s camera uses an Exmor-R mobile sensor with the f/2.4 lens. All pictures and videos can be shared in HD on your living room TV via the built in HDMI-connector. The screen now uses Reality Display which is supposed to be brighter and clearer than regular LCD.

Sony-Ericsson’s local PR did not specify the exact date of the release nor an estimated retail price but the pre-order offer might indicate it could be sooner than later.

Update: Suggested retail price is Php32,750 according to SE Philippines PR.

  1. tama. around 25k lang dapat yan. hardware/software specs ang dapat magpamahal sa isang gadget, hindi lang yun design.

      Sony has always been known to have a steep price, because of their designs and materials used. Their TVs, BD players, etc. all have steep prices compared to competing brands. Another company does well in this regards is Apple. Nobody’s complaining in this site that iPhone 4 costs an arm. Maybe some are, but the majority are not. I’m not an Android fanboy nor an Apple fanboy. I’m just stating my observation.

    Mr. Yugatech, What is your reference for the price?

    P32,750 is too much IMHO. I’m amenable to this price if it’s the Xperia Play with the added hardware controls or the SGS 2 with dual core, NFC, etc.

    Appropriate price for the features is P25-P28k.

  3. may nakakaalam ba kung magkano ang Xperia Neo? at tsaka kung idedemo rin ba siya dun?
