We have a bit of good news now for those of you that live in the UK and are waiting to get their hands on the new Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc, as it appears that O2 has recently posted a “Coming soon” page on its website for the much-awaited smartphone.

According to a recent article over on the gsmarena.com website, the UK mobile operator has indicated that the handset will be available for purchase sometime in April, although there’s no word of a specific launch date or an idea of pricing at this stage.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon (Scorpion) processor, runs Android 2.3 and features a large 4.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, which uses a Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine, 512MB memory and an 8-megapixel camera with flash.

As Desire Athow from itproportal.com recently noted, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc smartphone – also known as the X12 – has already been made available for pre-order at Play.com, with a price tag of £460. Will you purchase the new phone on O2?
