Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro Review
Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro is based on Sony Ericsson’s first Android device, the Xperia X10 and its only difference from the “regular” Mini is the physical sliding keyboard that makes typing much easier.
X10 Mini Pro Specifications
The most impressive thing is that Sony Ericsson on the specifications of the device are not worse than the slighty larger Xperia X10 is. The Xperia X10 Minis are all smartphones, like the great X10. They run the same version of Android (1.6) as their big brother. The 600MHz processor lets everything run remarkably smoothly. The Mini’s are equipped with Bluetooth, WiFi and HSDPA. On the back is a 5 megapixel camera with fast response. At the front, 2.5 inch capacitive touch screen reacts just as quickly.
The X10 Mini Pro is a fraction thicker because of the sliding keyboard.
Android for Sony Ericsson has developed a unique user interface. They call the Timescape and is on the X10 Mini and also on the Mini Pro. But for the small screen is adjusted so that with one finger to operate. Especially the shortcuts in the four corners of the screen are a godsend in that respect. They take up little space, but still take you quickly to a user defined program.
Qwerty on Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro
Difference between the ordinary and the Mini Mini Pro’s on several points. The most striking is the sliding QWERTY keyboard of the Mini Pro. This makes it slightly thicker than its ‘normal’ twin brother, but he will be in your pocket not in your way. Because the keyboard over the entire length of the device is inserted, it has more space than, say, a Blackberry Bold 9700 or a Nokia E72. The keys are nice and far apart and with thicker fingers is good at typing.
They are available in five different colors from matt black to bright green.
