UK Residents can now Pre-Order the Xperia Arc

The most anticipated phone in the Xperia family which was unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2011 is now available for pre-order. This deal which is available only in the UK from the “” website can be pre-ordered for £459.99 or roughly US$728 and comes with free delivery. The unit will be sold sim free and unlocked making it compatible with almost all networks across the globe. If you make your pre-order now, expect the unit to ship out to your address by the 1st of April.

The price might be a little bit high but if you compare it with the price of an iPhone 4 (£689.99) it comes in cheaper and has better hardware specifications. Expect the price to be lower once the unit becomes officially available to the public since pre-order prices are usually higher.

The Xperia Arc will be the latest flagship model of Sony Ericsson which is jam-packed with powerful features. This early offering for 2011 from the company is a strong indication of their desire to be the leaders in the Android market.
