    I work at TalkTalk, CPW are in the same building, SE were in the canteen today showing off the NEO, ARC and PLAY, i gota admit the arc is gorgeous, screeen was very vibrant and criso, ran very smooth indeed, lightweight, very thin, felt great in the hand and camera was wicked, checked the battery.... 60%left and had been unplugged for just over 9hrs.... i am looki at the optimus 2x... but this has thrown a spanner in the works, very impressed!

    Yes, enjoyed reading that. A little disappointed to hear that the audio quality is not up to scratch.

    Can't wait to get my Arc, but Carphone said I may have to wait till Monday till I get it.

    Cnet UK, Endgadget reviews are in. I'm assuming that the phone is available now. Only problem is that I'm not too sure I want Arc now, since its poor battery life

    I have ordered the midnight blue. Have been told by Carphone that the phone is not released till Friday, meaning I am not likely to receive it till Monday. The agony of waiting till then is hard to take, especially when I have heard that customers who have made there purchase from SE direct, expansys and I think Clove too will be dispatching the Arc today for delivery tommorrow.
