Two biggest features in the original I miss, is secondary camera (there is a space for it!) and a dual core CPU.

I can just overclock the current CPU to 1.4Ghz. I'm sure they are exactly the same chip just set to run at different clock speed in the firmware!

hello,,,, I think, it would be the best phone if a Bravia + Exmor R sensor + Dual core
+ secondary camera 2 MP + internal RAM 1 GB + internal 512 MB storage + 6 colors ( White, Black, Silver, Blue, Pink, and orange light) for the next Xperia ARC..maybe this will be the next amazing journey... and I hope so!!! BRAVO SE.

nope ...official SE comment:
When it comes to future platforms of the Android OS, we will make them available to consumers in a timely manner, as long as they improve the user experience and are viable from a hardware point of view...

'...with the same size of 4.2 inches as its predecessor but a slightly higher resolution of 854 x 480 pixels, compared to the 800 x 480 on the original Xperia arc.'

The original XPERIA Arc also has the resolution of 854 x 480 pixels, not 800 x 480, that is, both phones share the same resolution.

There is no Secondary Camera in arcS also...

Inbuilt memory should be increased....

Samsung S2 contains 16GB of internal memory.. so when compared to that it is very less only.

Hope they should improve the memory atleast in the upcoming phones...

Guys the problem is not in xperia, the problem is in SE itself, why:
1- They care about the design only
2- Old OS, 2.3.4 (I have Samsung S2 which is 2.3.5, and xperia arc)
3- User wait till death for minor updates
4- NEVER do what they Promised ---- main Point
5- Delays at everything
6- When new hardware release, that means f**k the old devises' users..(Dont dream about any updates)
5- Can't Root you device, unless risk happens. that means no cool apps like wifikill or Fonts
7- The last point is for you, How can you buy a device that released after other superasses devices, ("With less qualification"). How could you buy that!!!

I used to be a fan of SE, but-----------------
