Sony Ericsson made a lot of noise in 2011 regarding 'Playstation' phones, but aside from a single model, it's all been a bit quiet since then. Now it's emerged that the first company outside of Sony to get Playstation certification will be HTC.

For this week's Mobile Monday column, we look at the Xperia Arc S. It's not a high end model, sitting more in the high end of the mid-range given its feature set. Is that enough to make it an enticing prospect?

Sony-only phones are coming back as predicted. The Japanese electronics giant has announced that it will acquire Ericsson's share of Sony Ericsson partnership, bringing it into the Sony 'platform of network-connected' products.

Amid the numbers and percentages in Sony Ericsson's latest financial data is a quote from CEO Bert Nordberg, in which he says the company will move "the entire portfolio to smartphones" by 2012. That K600i update isn't happening, folks.

Let this be a lesson to all of you - you can't believe everything you read on the internet. Vodafone NZ has tried to drum up excitement for the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play by claiming on Twitter that the entire shipment of phones was stolen. Turns out it was nothing more than a poorly thought out marketing stunt.
