Sony Ericsson reveals Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 smartphones – videos

Sony Ericsson reveals Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 smartphonesSo cute and tiddly you just might want to give them a lickle hug are the new Sony Ericsson ‘Xperia X10 mini’ and ‘Xperia X10 mini pro’ pint-sized handsets.

Both phones are just about identical apart from the pro version packing a QWERTY keyboard and there being a different selection of colours available at launch.

The mini will be flaunting itself in black, pearl white, lime, pink, red and silver, while the mini pro looks to be aiming for a goth clientèle, being offered in just black and red.

Although the pro comes with a physical keyboard, there’s not a great deal of difference in size between the handsets, with the measurements being: Xperia X10 mini: 83 x 50 x 16 mm;  Xperia X10 mini pro: 90 x 52 x 17 mm.

Both the handsets purr along on the Android 1.6 OS, and are powered by a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor.

There’ll be both North American and global 3G variants on launch, veritably bristling with quad-band EDGE, WiFi and Bluetooth, with a bundled 2GB microSD card lobbed in for the LOLs.

Timescape

Running on top of the regular Android OS, is Sony Ericsson’s Timescape UI which lets you access all your Facebook status updates, friends photos, inbox messages and friend requests, Tweets, text and picture messages and all your other social networking gubbins in one place.

The screen is a disappointing 2.5-inch 240 x 320 pixels (QVGA) touchscreen job, and the phones are expected to be sliding down Sony Ericsson’s slipway some time in Q2.
