Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro demo video

Xperia_X10_mini_pro_Open_Black Following on from the Sony Ericsson press conference held in Barcelona just before the official start of MWC a week ago James managed to track down a couple of the new handset announced by Sony Ericsson, namely the X10 Mini and the X10 Mini PRO.

These are two handsets that really surprised me, I didn’t expect Sony Ericsson to actually announce these. Both new handset have run on Android 1.6 but have a heavily customised user interface. In fact when I saw them in action earlier this week they were almost unrecognisable as being Android.

As you’ll see in the video both the X10 Mini and the Mini PRO have a footprint not much larger than a credit card but still manage to pack in plenty of cool features and what impressed me so was just how usable the QWERTY keyboard is on the Mini PRO, I expected it to be far too cramped to be viable for everyday use but I think it works pretty well!

We’ll be pushing Sony Ericsson hard to get our hands on these ASAP for a full review, but have a look at the demo video that James recorded at MWC where a nice lady from Sony Ericsson takes us on a quick tour. Video, photos and press release follow.

Get Compact and Clever with Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 mini pro

  • Sony Ericsson grows its family of Communication Entertainment phones with compact versions of Xperia X10 for the first half of 2010
  • Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro define a new user experience – ultra-compact – whilst still offering best-in-class communication entertainment performance

Sony Ericsson has brought to market Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro, compact versions of Xperia X10, which will deliver powerful and application packed mobile phones into the industry. By introducing mobile phones that are both compact and clever, Sony Ericsson is challenging the norm and defining a brand new offering that combines high specification features with a version of Sony Ericsson’s powerful UX platform specifically designed for smaller devices.

Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro with slide out QWERTY keyboard offer an open and intuitive communication entertainment experience and build on the human curvature design philosophy debuted by the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. Combining the Android platform with signature applications and a customisable UX platform, communication truly becomes entertainment with these new mobile phones. To enhance the experience, pick and choose from a multitude of applications at Android Market and co-create a mobile phone experience that is entirely unique. Users can go one step further and customise the home screen’s four corners and widgets to access the most needed applications for limitless possibilities.

The two sister mobile phones incorporate the signature application Sony Ericsson Timescape which brings all communication together in one place so users can see at a glance text messages, missed calls, and Facebook and Twitter updates, without having to open lots of different applications. The interactive music player also uses the “infinite button” to pull together all music content from the music store and YouTube – a smart way to search for new tracks from a favourite artist.

"There has been an enormous buzz around Xperia X10 so it is really exciting to be already unveiling compact versions of this powerful proposition." said Rikko Sakaguchi, EVP and Chief Creation Officer, Sony Ericsson. "With the X10 mini and X10 mini pro we have pushed the boundaries of what is possible with smaller devices and are giving consumers exactly what they want; two high performance mobile phones with a fully customisable user experience platform and a stunning ultra-compact design."
