Xperia Arc is the official name of Anzu

The phone known as the Anzu will be officially called the Xperia Arc.  This Android phone will be released this year and will become the flagship model of Sony Ericsson. Why is it called the arc? It must have been called the arc judging from the way its body curves in an arc like shape. This is a unique shape coming from an Xperia phone so we will have to pass on making a judgment on whether it is ergonomic enough to use once we get our hands on a unit.

Here are some of the rumored specifications the Xperia Arc (Anzu) will be having.

Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7230 processor
