Sony Ericsson's Xperia Arc Has a New Type of Display

What the hell, Sony Ericsson? "Reality Display"!? Are you just jealous of Apple's Retina Display; Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus and LG's NOVA buzzwords? Whatever, this Android Gingerbread phone is slim at 8.7mm—yes, a new "world's slimmest" phone.

You've got to feel for LG really, who had barely a day riding the "world's slimmest" float with their 9.2mm Optimus Black, and before it the iPhone 4, which is a shade thicker.

The Arc has a 4.2-inch Reality Display with 854 x 480 resolution, which they say brings a brighter, clearer picture than other displays thanks to the "Mobile Bravia Engine". There's an 8.1MP camera on the back (no forward-facing cam here), and two color options: midnight blue and misty silver.

Dear lord. I wish phones would cut this shit out. Stop using buzz words, just tell me the reality of the situation.

Eh... a phone is a phone, but I'm wondering how this tech will be applied elsewhere.

It looks neat but I really don't think it's that big deal.

That's a slick phone. Is it bad I still have my Motorola razr from 2006?

I like to think that I'm just keeping it O.G., as they say...

I agree with Das Auto and Snickelsox.

A) HD is for TVs
B) Cell phone companies need to stop trying to dazzle people and just be straight with us.
