Sony Ericsson walked out triumphant from the iF design awards ceremony after scoring 4 trophies in the telecommunications category. The company's Xperia range didn't even need the help of the Xperia S, which is yet to hit the shelves, to do so well.
There were 4,322 entries for this year's iF design awards, divided into 16 categories and 100 of them got the iF gold award for exceptional design achievements. Sony Ericsson's lineup of Android smartphones accounted for four of the winners, but we didn't get to know the actual numbers of entries that the company had.
The honored devices were the rugged Xperia active, the compact Xperia ray and Xperia mini and the music-centered Live with Walkman. Quite the achievement for the soon-to-become Sony company, considering that those four smartphones are actually quite different from each other in terms of aesthetics.
According to the jury, the takeaway from this year's iF awards is: „The interplay of different textures, of matt and high-gloss finishes and of tactile and colored surfaces is particularly to the fore this year and serves, primarily, as a means of differentiation in the marketplace."
Now that's one of the main reason i hate Icrap and stay away from Samsung. But i can't believe that they ignored ARC or ARC S here???? This is the most amazingly designed handset by far in the market, in fact everywhere.

Still ARC or ARC S both got the appreciation from us users, right? In fact you can barely find any user who is happy with Samsung design only. Not the specs though.

Well I am quite happy with ARC S performance.
Because in my country Samsung Galaxy S and ARC S price is same 480-500 USD.
Depending on the price ARC S performs really good. since i have both of these above device.
Not talking about Galaxy S II or comparing also since it's priced as 720 USD here.
