Sony Ericsson came back out this year with a bang. Introducing the new flagship XPERIA handset called Xperia Arc turned out to be a favorite in terms of looks at least. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc is a promising smartphone – it looks sleek with it's metallic sports car styled body, feels smooth and packs a very decent 8MP HD camera. And chances are that it will improve even further before it hits the shelves.
While the Arc is an update to the disappointing Xperia X10, Sony Ericsson cannot abandon the Vivaz legacy behind. The next introduction was to another sleek and stylish handset called XPERIA Neo. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Neo has the appearance of a Vivaz and an Android heart. Is this what the original Vivaz should have been?
The Neo will make a lot of sense as the more affordable phone, while the Arc as the flagship. Up next is something I have been very exited about ever since it's news breezed along my ears.
Sony Ericsson is hitting with another new segment of phones which have not been introduced by any other manufacturer before. With partnership of their very own Sony Playstation brand they have developed a gaming phone.
This particular phone may not have been the most well kept secret in the history of Mobile Phones as we started to see prototypes popping up around the internet a year before it's launch. The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play features a 4" FWVGA screen, but strangely is the only one of the newly announced devices not to pack a Reality display.
Sony Ericsson XPERIA Play might not be powered by some of the latest chipsets with dual-core processors, but it seems Sony Ericsson is on the way of creating a similar ecosystem like Apple's. It will be less restricted of course, but it should help the Play get a market niche of its own. And with the Sony's varied gaming partners this won't be so hard to accomplish.
All these phones are marvels of their own. I am still not sure which device is the best one to buy amongst them. Other than Apple, Sony Ericsson is the only manufacturer that keeps the looks and hardware together, giving us perfectly packaged devices everyone likes.
Sony Ericsson has not been so active about sales here in Pakistan in the last couple of years. We are hoping that the XPERIA Arc, Neo and Play do arrive soon here as well so we can cherish upon their wonderfulness.
So here is the question that still remains unanswered, which one amongst these do you deserve?
