Conclusion: I believe that the type of people who would buy this type of phone would be people buying it as a gift for a child if the price was right, and younger people themselves who maybe can’t afford an iPhone or something similar, other than that I can’t really see businesses opting for this instead of...
Excerpt: The first thing that strikes you when you look at the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro is its beautiful 3.7" LED multi-touch screen. But it gets better! Hiding behind all that glitter is a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. A real..
