Sony's upcoming Nypon handset to feature its WhiteMagic display with 1000 nits of brightness?
Also, Sony claims that in regular mode, the display draws half of the juice that conventional LCDs usually do, which should do some wonders for the battery life on the Nypon. The handset was also pictured recently with only Sony branding, so we'd assume the rest of the phones in the spec leak that was published today, will be just Sony when they land as well.
the Pepper handset, which was caught on camera recently, and the CPU row on the right shows that Sony would indeed give ST-Ericsson's NovaThor dual-core chipset a shot, parting with the long-standing tradition to use only Qualcomm chipsets in its Android phones.
Sony already teased new additions to the Xperia line then.
To gauge how much better a 1000 nits display behaves under direct sunlight, watch our video comparison below of the Nokia 701 with the iPhone 4 - 1000 nits, and about 600 nits, respectively.

50 percent lower energy consumption?
Ah, now i want that display in the 4.55inch HD form, running on the snapdragon s4 version of Sony Ion, with a 3000mah battery.
It would be a perfect, future proof phone

I hope these company's are telling the truth when they say they won't launch a phone every 2 weeks that beat their last phone's axx. I mean it is frustrating to get the Galaxy SII skyrocket when the Galaxy SII skyrocket HD is coming out 10 minutes later.

I meant future proof for two - three years :-P
but really, I don't need more than an ion specs upped with a high end s4 processor and ability to provide four days of moderate to heavy use

With some devices already using Bluetooth v.3.0 or even v.4.0, didn't these (v.2.1) seem to be outdated?

Not really, more compatibility and it's already fast enough. I don't notice any difference between my Arc and GS2 while using Bluetooth

I believe some applications will use it in the near future, also be considering you will use this phone for two years. The new version is not only about the speed but also about the power efficiency and maybe some other advantages.
Both Motorola Droid Razr and Apple iPhone 4S have Bluetooth v4.0 already.

That's one attractive phone, I've always loved the Xperia Arcs design and this phone looks fantastic as well.
