I´m a litlle confused, it´s about the original Xperia Arc and the more recent Xperia Arc S, why do you rate the new arc s as only 3g and the original arc as 3.5g?? I can´t understand this because on paper the Arc S is "HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.8 Mbps " and the original Arc is only " HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.8 Mbps" i really need to figure this out, why is the original arc more faster than the new one?, are you wrong? if you are wrong you should correct this info, this is confusing!!!
