Featuring Ireland’s first “All you can eat data” plans 

Three, Ireland’s largest high speed network, today announced the launch of the sleek super-slim Sony Ericsson XPERIA™ arc. The handset is available at all 3Stores and stockists, as well as online at three.ie.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA™ arc is available from Free on Bill Pay, with Three’s market-leading “All you can eat” data offering, giving unlimited data usage on all Smartphone price plans, with no excess data charges. The handset features breathtaking design and is the first Android Gingerbread (2.3) handset to launch on Three in Ireland.

The handset has a unique shape with an extra-slim, lightweight body only 8.6mm thick in the middle which gradually becomes 10mm at both ends. The ergonomic shape of the arch makes it the perfect fit to hold and operate.

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA™ arc features a 4.2 inch multi-touch display, plus Google Android 2.3, which is the largest-ever on a Sony Ericsson device. The display is powered by the Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine which is the same technology that the company uses in its award-winning flat screen TVs.

The stylish lightweight handset offers a great user-experience with access to over 160,000 applications via Google Market.  Other features include an 8.1 mega-pixel camera with Sony Exmor technology which is great for low to light photography and video capture. It is powered by a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, has 512MB of memory and comes with an 8GB microSD card. The handset is available in midnight blue and misty silver colours on Three.

Commenting on the launch, Eoin MacManus, Commercial Director at Three, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of the Sony Ericsson XPERIA™ arc. The handset is the first Android Gingerbread (2.3) handset to launch on Three and joins our expanding Smartphone range. When combined with our exclusive All you can eat data price plans giving customers unlimited mobile internet, Three customers can be confident of getting the most competitively priced Smartphone packages in the market place.

Three has launched a number of ground–breaking initiatives in recent months including Ireland’s first All you can eat data tariffs which allows customers to surf for free, with no excess data charges. Three’s “Dare to Dream” affinity scheme offers Football Association of Ireland-affiliated clubs across the country the chance of earning cash when their members switch to Three. The more people that switch through the club, the more money the club earns as a cash bounty, to help with its support and development.
