MWC 2010: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini pro packs in a tiny QWERTY slider

Mobile phones, MWC 2010, Tech Digest news

It may look very similar to the Xperia X10 Mini, but the Xperia X10 Mini pro has one key trump card up its sleeve: a slide-out, full QWERTY keyboard.

Sure, at smaller than the phone’s 2.55 inch screen it isn’t the biggest keyboard we’ve seen, but it will likely come in handy when Tweeting and texting.

Other than that it’s very similar to its X10 siblings; you’ve got a 5 megapxiel camrea, GPS, Geo-tagging, the UX interface, 3.5 mm headphone jack and the TimeScape feed organiser.

Rikko Sakaguchi, EVP and Chief Creation Officer, Sony Ericsson. “With the X10 mini and X10 mini pro we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible with smaller devices and are giving consumers exactly what they want; two high performance mobile phones with a fully customisable user experience platform and a stunning ultra-compact design.”

The Xperia X10 Mini pro will be available from Q2 of this year.
