Sony Ericsson aims higher in 2011

The first step that they've taken is to improve the Xperia Arc handset adding an impressive new camera as well as 32-point multitouch. Using a new type of sensor known as Exmor R and with improved placement of the light sensors on the device the Experia Arc will now be able to take pictures in low-light conditions with much improved image stability. As well as the reduced risk of blurred pictures the UI of the camera has also been tweaked to speed up the process of taking pictures.

Going from no multitouch on the previous arc to 32-point multi-touch on the new model will also see a significant improvement in performance. It would theoretically allow 32 digits to operate it simultaneously but its main purpose will be to provide more accurate gestures which should make for more accurate typing.

Although the X10 and X10 mini failed to impress the market Steve Walker from Sony Ericsson was keen to point out how they influenced the development of the new Arc;

"If we hadn't done what we did with the X10 and the X10 minis we wouldn't have been able to do what we've done here today"

The new arc is expected to be available within the next couple of months and "is just the first of many" that Sony Ericsson plans to release in the new year.
