UK: Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S ships on September 30, Xperia Pro on October 6
Two Android-powered Sony Ericsson smartphones are about to become available in the UK in the near future, at least in SIM-free and unlocked form. So if for some reason you thought that there just weren’t enough Android phones on the market, this will make you happy.
First up, we have the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc S. This has a minor bump in specs compared to the original Xperia Arc, but that small bump is nevertheless very welcome. The Arc S is set to start shipping from UK retailer Clove this Friday, on September 30. If you’re interested in it, you can still pre-order one from Clove for £349.99 in either white or blue.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro was announced back in February during MWC, and it’s certainly been a very long time coming. Yet it will finally arrive on UK shelves on October 6. That’s when Clove plans to start shipping Xperia Pros out to those who pre-ordered them. Which, by the way, you can still do at Clove if you agree to part with £322.80 of your hard earned cash.
So if you like your smartphone slim and sleek, or if you love side-sliding keyboards, Sony Ericsson will have something for you pretty soon. If you’re into Android, that is.
