[pullquote_right]A ridiculously low price for such a powerful smartphone[/pullquote_right]
Find any problems with that little list? Didn’t think so!

The reason for this delicious deal is simply that there’s a new Xperia Arc that’ll be released next week called the Xperia Arc S. But don’t let that fool you – the original Xperia Arc is only six months old and the only difference between the two phones is the processor speed (1.4GHz compared to the original Xperia Arc’s 1GHz).

For the mobile etailers, though, it means they’ve got to shift their stock of original Xperia Arcs quickly – hence this super-cheap deal.

And the Xperia Arc is still a peach of a smartphone – just check out my original Xperia Arc review.

If you’d rather get your Arc for even less per month, then pay £49.99 up front and you can get the Xperia Arc on a 12 month contract for just £20 per month.

That’s a ridiculously low price for such a powerful smartphone.

At this price, you can afford to buy the Xperia Arc as a second phone, or just to see if Android is the right mobile OS for you.

Hurry, though – the deal’s only on while stocks remain.
