The Xperia X10 mini pro sports a 2.55-inch TFT touchscreen, runs on Google Android 1.6, and has 128MB of memory (expandable up to 16GB via microSD). The unit also incorporates Sony Ericsson Timescape, the signature application which brings all communication together in one place so users can see text messages, missed calls, and Facebook and Twitter updates at a glance.
The mini pro also uses an Infinite button that is able to pull together all music content from the music store and YouTube.
The human curvature design of the Xperia X10 mini pro combined with a full QWERTY slider keypad allows for quick texting, Internet access and emailing. In addition, the handset has an efficient graphical user interface, with four customisable touch corners, allowing users to access favourite web links, applications, social networking and email with just one touch.
Sony Ericsson Australia’s Managing Director, Brendan Johnston said, “With the Xperia X10 mini pro we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible with smaller devices and are giving consumers who prefer quick email and text options exactly what they want; a high performance mobile phone with a fully customisable UX platform and a stunning ultra-compact design. The Xperia X10 mini pro is a small and sociable solution for smartphone users.”
The Xperia X10 mini pro will be available in August for $629.
