Sony Ericsson will be launching some smartphones for its XPERIA range in February, but the XPERIA Arc won’t be on that list as thought before. They already launched the phone yesterday and here's the lowdown.

The XPERIA Arc has a thin profile as you can see from the video above. It supports IMAP/POP and Exchange email as well as Gmail. Social networks, such as Twitter and Facebook, can be integrated and used for adding contacts. The phone has Adobe Flash 10.1 support for the browser built-in, so media on any web page will be easy to play. The phone has the following features under the hood :
