Xperia Arc, Play begin getting Android 2.3.3

Sony Ericsson has begun rolling out the first software update for the Xperia Arc and Play smartphones. While it's limited to certain markets and builds, a more widespread release is due next week. It includes Android 2.3.3 and deeper Facebook integration from the new Xperia minis along with more detailed fixes and upgrades.

The Facebook integration is the core and lets users quickly view information and works better with TimeScape. Contacts are also better integrated, with synced friends' birthdays, for example, put into the handset's calendar.

The other key improvements mostly part of Android 2.3.3 include better battery performance, greater software and Wi-Fi stability, improved touch response and better HD video recording on the Arc.

Other Xperia-branded phones are expected to get the same update at a later time.
