There has been some discussion on XDA about Sony making lots of UI changes between the current beta and the final release but I seriously doubt they would take the risk. So you'll get the same launcher that the beta has - which is a cross between the old one and the Xperia S one.
However, I did install the stock ICS launcher (Launcher2) and it works perfectly! (I'm on the ICS beta BTW). Sadly this alternative launcher only works when installed as a system app which would require root access - but I'm sure there are some similar packages on Google Play.

I hope that they will include that in the update since its beautiful on Arc s!!! BTW what are the launchers that you're talking about that have the similar packages, are they like the trebuchet launcher? Thanks.
