Mobile phones, MWC 2010, Tech Digest news

While Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X10 could hardly be called chunky, its makers have just announced the release of the Xperia X10 Mini, a credit-card sized smartphone that features almost exactly the same functionality as its bigger brother.

Featuring a re-skinned and fully customisable Android OS, the Mini also features four screen-corner customisable hotspots, which can be used to quickly jump from application to application with just a single press, using just one hand.

As well as the TimeSpace app, which collects together all your email, messaging and social network feeds into one place, there’s also a 5 megapixel camera onboard.

“There has been an enormous buzz around Xperia™ X10 so it is really exciting to be already unveiling compact versions of this powerful proposition.” Said Rikko Sakaguchi, EVP and Chief Creation Officer, Sony Ericsson.

The Xperia X10 Mini should be hitting shops in Q2 of this year.
