Today – one day ahead of the official MWC 2010 debut – Sony Ericsson announced three new phones: Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini and Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro.
All three new handsets will be available starting the second quarter of 2010, for prices that should be announced later on.
As you’ve probably already guessed, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is a Vivaz with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It’s based on Symbian (Symbian^3, I assume) and has most of the features the original Vivaz has, including a 3.2 inch, 16:9 wide touchscreen, and HD video recording (although its camera seems to be a 5MP one, and not a 8.1MP one) . Here’s the Vivaz Pro:

Next, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini (also known as SE Robyn) is, simply put, a smaller Xperia X10. It runs Android 1.6 and it’s reportedly “very powerful” – not sure if this means that it has a 1GHz CPU, like the big X10 (update: nope, it has a 600 MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 CPU). The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini features a 2.55 inch QVGA touchscreen display, HSPA, A-GPS, Google Maps, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP autofocus camera, and a 2GB MicroSD card in the box. It will be available in six colors: Black, Pearl White, Lime, Pink, Red and Silver.
The third new SE phone announced at MWC 2010 is the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro – it’s similar to the X10 Mini, but it adds a hardware QWERTY keyboard.
