Last week Sony Ericsson launched two new exciting phones in India. The two phones; Xperia Arc and Xperia Play are unique, have some great specifications and consist of some great features. The best part is that they are both based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
I have had the chance to play with both these devices and they are definitely worth the money, you can see a hands-on video and pictures of Xperia Arc and a hands-on video and pictures of Xperia Play along with reading the Xperia Arc and Xperia Play specifications.
