Yet another Sony Ericsson Android phone is set for release in the UK, with the Xperia Arc set to hit shelves in the spring, news that has been revealed thanks to an O2 holding page for the phone.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc UK Release

After its initial unveiling at CES 2011, the phone – which will come complete with Android 2.3 – raised a few eyebrows by being remarkably similar to several other phones with the Xperia name. Of most interest however is the similarity with the forthcoming Xperia Play – once known as the “PlayStation Phone” which might lead to more than a few mistaken purchases by wannabe mobile gamers already unsure whether to purchase a phone or a NGP.

While confusion over the phone’s specs shouldn’t be a problem – the Xperia Arc is expected to have the same hardware spec as the Xperia Play  – anyone attempting to slide the phone open to find a gamepad is likely to be cruelly disappointed.

The tasty hardware, by the way, includes the now-obligatory 1 Ghz Snapdragon processor, high definition display and an outstanding 8.1 MP camera. If the camera and software is as good as the ones on the other Xperia models, the result is likely to be more like a 12 MP camera.
