Summary: The Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro is a step up from it’s twin brother, the X10 Mini. The only main differences between the Mini Pro and the Mini is that the Mini Pro packs a full physical QWERTY keyboard and is slightly bigger & heavier. In this review I’ll only talk about stuff that’s different to the Mini, so if you want to read up about the X10 Mini series check out the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Review and the X10 Mini Pro Initial Thoughts post then read this one :).
Excerpt: Just when we thought Sony Ericsson had lost its mojo it releases the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro. Not only are these phones small but they also run Android. If small is beautiful then Sony Ericsson might be on to something special. You can pick up the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro in various colours for free on a monthly contract.
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro manages to pack loads of features into an eye-squintingly small package, just like its sibling, the Xperia X10 Mini. But the Mini Pro adds a slide-out Qwerty keyboard, making it the most usable miniature smart phone. Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini Pro – Features: The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro mobile phone offers the superb combination of excellent touch screen features and the power of full QWERTY keyboard.
Excerpt: A phone that manages to squeeze a full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard into a compact package The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Mini Pro manages to squeeze a full, slide-out QWERTY keyboard into a ridiculously compact package. A successor to the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini Pro, the XPERIA Mini Pro offers a number of benefits over its predecessor.
Conclusion: Overall I would recommend this phone to anyone who loves phones, wants to switch from something larger to something smaller or to the younger community who are maybe fed up with their blackberries etc.
Summary: The original X10 Mini Pro suffered at the hands of Sony Ericsson’s early attempts at skinning Android as well as being massively underpowered. The slideout QWERTY keyboard has now made a return in the form of the Xperia Mini Pro (minus the X10) and comes complete with improved processor, better screen, camera and all the other Android tricks Sony Ericsson has in its current handset lineup.
Pros: Very nice user interface skin, Facebook integration that’s not too intrusive, Usable web browser with Flash player support, Solid hardware with usable keyboard
Cons: Camera images exaggerate strong colours, 720p video output lacks detail, Filled with Sony promotional apps, Video codec support not extensive

Conclusion: If you want a compact smartphone with a comfortable landscape QWERTY keyboard that can be used for text editing and document creation on the go, the Xperia Mini Pro is your best bet, especially at the low price its selling worldwide, with or without a contract.

Summary: Some software glitches aside, the Xperia Mini Pro provides incredible bang for your smartphone buck. Far from the typical afterthought appendage, its keyboard offers stellar tactile feedback and a frustration-free layout. The fact that the Mini Pro costs half as much as the typical Android handset only sweetens the deal, while the few cutbacks Sony Ericsson has made appear reasonable and mostly peripheral.
Pros: Excellent keyboard, Much cheaper than comparable phones, Improves on X10 Mini Pro in most respects
Cons: Resolution is still pretty low, Chunky, less pocketable than most, Software isn’t perfect
Conclusion: With the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro , you'll surely succeed in being different. The tiny handset is indeed a looker, and it is such offerings that feel like a breath of fresh air in this crowded market. What we're happy about is that Sony Ericsson managed to upgrade the mini to a pretty decent 2011 smartphone, all the while preserving its characteristic looks.
Pros: Different, ultra-compact design, Very usable QWERTY keyboard, Custom UI full of little treats
Cons: Weak photo and video taking capabilities, Some physical buttons could be better

Conclusion: The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini and Mini Pro will be available in the third quarter of 2011 – a bit late to the party, and who knows what competition it will have. However, with its wild look and great Facebook integration, I’m sure it’ll find its buyers.
