It’s all round bad news again for the Xperia Arc. Delayed now a second time, Optus are now advising that the end of May at the earliest, is when it’s likely to hit stores. That’s got to be a major set back for Sony Ericsson. This brings the Arc into the Galaxy S 2 and Optimus 3D launch timeframe. Not that the 3D should stun Arc sales but the Galaxy S 2, might just throw a spanner in the already late handset’s works. Let’s hope the Arc gets here sooner rather then later, so people can enjoy the awesomeness that is the Xperia Arc
I went to an Optus store over the weekend. And asked about the Xperia Arc and whether they had any new information on when they would stock the Arc. They couldn’t give me anything concrete about it, and just said, “A few weeks.” Interesting as I also asked them about the Xperia Play and they said they didn’t have any information on it yet, despite being listed on the Optus website (and other sources).

this phone could not dial 000, this is the reason for the delay
I saw one on the bus yesterday. Odd

Sony and Sony Ericsson after 2 different companies…. In saying that, what do you have to say for those who hacked the sony systems in the first place?

only bcoz its a sony ericsson arc, if not.. definitely i have chosen another phone rather that waiting to this one..
Sigh. This is getting annoying
The Arc is still pegged as a designer phone so I don’t think that it is necessarily competing directly with the Galaxy S II anyway. Not that Optus does a great job of advertising its important phones though…
