Sony Ericsson is giving the forthcoming Xperia Arc a neon pink respray for the Japanese market, presumably in response to the widely held perception that Android phones don’t cut the mustard with girls.

Earlier this month INQ CEO Frank Meehan stirred up controversy when he claimed that phones running Google’s OS were the preserve of fanboys and had little appeal for pretty girls.

It’s presumably something close to this - we’re saying somewhat misguided – notion of what girls look for in a handset that’s inspired Sony Ericsson’s Japanese division to bring out a Sakura pink edition of the Arc.

Aside from the garish new colourway, the handset is unchanged. That means it’ll run Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, out of the box and will pack a dual core Scorpion processor to keep everything running tickety-boo.

Other features include an eight-megapixel snapper with autofocus and HD video recording and a capacious 4.2-inch LCD Reality display.

SE has yet to announce a UK release for the Arc’s pink colour variant.
