Sony Ericsson released just one phone at CES, but the Xperia Arc is nothing to ignore. The hardware, to be frank, is stunning. The handset has a great feeling in the hand; we love the sleek profile; and the display is a looker.

The features are also impressive. We're particularly glad to see the device running Gingerbread--remember that the Xperia X10 ran OS 1.6 when it debuted--and the idea of the Bravia engine powering the media player is something we hadn't expected. We're still ambivalent about Timescape, and we hope it won't interfere with future OS updates, but we wouldn't have a problem if the Xperia Arc came to a U.S. carrier.

After two days of press conferences, we tracked down the Xperia Arc at Sony's massive booth. Sony Ericsson had a small table in the center, but it was laden with Xperia Arc models. Hit the photo gallery for the closer look at Sony Ericsson's newest Android phone.
