XPERIA Arc 8.1MP Exmor R camera gets video demo

Sony Ericsson may not have bothered with NFC or a front-facing camera on the XPERIA Arc, but that doesn't mean the upcoming Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone fails to bring something new to the table. The company has been talking more about the Exmor R 8.1-megapixel camera on the Arc, and more precisely why there's more than just pure megapixels to differentiate it from rival handsets.

Sony Ericsson blame XPERIA Arc 2.4 leaks on “misconfiguration”

Sony Ericsson has described screenshots showing the XPERIA Arc apparently running Android 2.4 as "a misconfiguration in some samples", as well as confirming that the 4.2-inch smartphone runs Qualcomm's 1GHz MSM8255 processor paired with Adreno 205 graphics.

The first step in providing a public root for the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has been achieved, with xda-developers member jerpelea managing to break open the Android smartphone and load up custom ROMs.  The drawback at present is that the hack requires SETool, which runs on its own custom hardware rather than being a cross-platform software tool; at present, only those with access to that hardware can actually modify their X10.
