Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini and Mini Pro to arrive in India this week
Officially announced in early May, and not yet available for purchase anywhere in the world, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini and Xperia Mini Pro should be released in India pretty soon.
In fact, Sony Ericsson India’s official website already has a Buy Now button for the Xperia Mini, but we’re not entirely sure the handset can be bought right away.
The Xperia Mini Pro appears at SE India’s website, too, although without a Buy Now button. However, online retailer Flipkart lets customers pre-order the Mini Pro, saying it will be launched “in the 5th week of July” – meaning this week. The smartphone costs 15,099 INR (about $340).
Both the Xperia Mini and Xperia Mini Pro run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and have similar features, including: 3 inch HVGA display, Timescape UI, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, DLNA, GPS, 5MP autofocus camera, and 1GHz processor. The Mini Pro has a sliding QWERTY keyboard, thus being a bit thicker than the Mini.
