Complicated naming scheme aside, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro is a very interesting little device, one of the smallest side-sliding QWERTY phones out there, hampered a bit by Sony Ericsson’s decision to have Android 1.6 running things, but still a rather unique and competition-free offering.
What you get for the money is:
- a 2.55-inch capacitive touchscreen with a 240 x 320 resolution
- 600 MHz processor
- 128 MB internal memory, expandable via microSD card slot
- Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, WiFi 802.11 b/g, HSDPA and HSUPA
- 5 Megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash, VGA recording at 30 fps and video light
- a 930 mAh battery
- Dimensions: 90 x 52 x 17 mm
- Weight: 120 g
An update to Android 2.1 is on the way as well, if you’re patient enough to wait until Q4.
On the Symbian side, the Vivaz Pro is basically the Vivaz with a pared down camera (at least in megapixel count) and a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard. If you fancy a touchscreen + QWERTY combination on Symbian, and Nokia’s N97 or N97 mini are not for you, this is another choice. Also, let’s not count out its 720p video recording capability.
Here are the main features of the Vivaz Pro:
- 3.2″ 360 x 640 resistive touchscreen
- 720 MHz processor with separate graphics chip
- 75 MB internal storage, expandable via microSD card slot
- 5 Megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash and (as mentioned above) 720p at 25 fps video recording
- Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi 801.11 b/g, HSDPA and HSUPA
- 1200 mAh battery
- Runs Symbian^1 (formerly known as S60 5th Edition)
- Dimensions: 109 x 52 x 15 mm
- Weight: 117 g
