MWC 2010: Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro gets the full QWERTY treatment

Mobile phones, MWC 2010, Tech Digest news

Sony Ericsson have announced a new model in their Vivaz range, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro, which adds a full QWERTY slider into the mix.

Featuring a 3.2 inch 16:9 touchscreen, the Vivaz Pro also features 720p video recording which can be uploaded straight to soial networks and YouTube, but loses the 8 megapixel still camera, instead dropping down to a 5 megapixel offering.

Sony Ericsson are also pushing the Symbian phone’s design quite heavily, describing its “human curvature” to be more ergonomic in the hand. Though to be fair, whilst very slick, its 109 x 52 x 15 mm frame doesn’t look unlike anything we’ve seen before.

Twitter, Facebook and Google Maps apps all come pre-loaded, with a range of games and downloads available through the PlayNow portal.

Expect to see the Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro in stores by the spring.
