Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and mini pro

x10mini Sony Ericsson have been busy today announcing 5 new handsets at MWC. Several of these handsets came totally out of the blue and it’s very unusual not to know about these things before they are announced. I think that the X10 mini and mini pro are going to be awesome!

The X10 mini rather reminds me of the Neonode N2. It’s great to see something exciting from Sony Ericsson and it’s now quite clear why they dropped the X2!

 

The full press release follows after the break.

 

 

Sony Ericsson grows its family of Communication Entertainment phones with compact versions of XperiaT X10 for the first half of 2010

XperiaT X10 mini and X10 mini pro define a new user experience – ultra-compact – whilst still offering best-in-class communication entertainment performance

Smaller than a credit card, smart and unique with Sony Ericsson TimescapeT application and an intuitive 4 corner touch screen user interface

February 14, 2010 – Barcelona – Today sees the announcement of XperiaT X10 mini and X10 mini pro, compact versions of XperiaT 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.

XperiaT 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 XperiaT 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 MarketT 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 TimescapeT which brings all communication together in one place so users can see at a glance text messages, missed calls, and FacebookT 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 YouTubeT – a smart way to search for new tracks from a favourite artist.

“There has been an enormous buzz around XperiaT 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.”
