Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Arc: Android 2.3.3 update released

Better battery and boost HD video recording thanks to new Android update.

Sony Ericsson’s flagship Xperia devices, the super-thin Arc and the games-focused Play, have both been given a bump to Android 2.3.3. This iterative update brings a slew of minor fixes and tweaks, but most importantly adds SE’s new Facebook Inside Xperia feature.

The new Facebook layer, revealed last month in London, allows you to share and like everything from photos to videos without ever having to fire up the phone’s Facebook app or log into the social network online. Simply tap on a snap and add your own comments or just press ‘like’.

What’s more, all your Facebook photos now automatically appear in the Xperia Play and Arc’s photo gallery, bypassing the network’s somewhat cumbersome new photo offering completely.

As well as the new Facebook features, HD video on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc has been improved, while battery performance, Wi-Fi stability and touch sensitivity have all been boosted across both devices.

Check out the clip below to see more on how Facebook Inside Xperia works and let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
