VIDEOVIEW: Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro Unboxing and Hands-On
3 September 2010
Excerpt: In today's videoview , we are unboxing the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro , the sister model of the Xperia X10 mini which additionally features a 4 row slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and the European version features dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz while the North American version supports triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 850/1900/2100 MHz.
Summary: The XPERIA X10 Mini is a stunning 3G Smartphone which has been manufactured by Sony Ericsson, & it sure has desirable good looks as well as an abundance of high speed technologies.The X10 Mini and Mini Pro aim to provide all round entertainment and communication at an affordable price. They are also the smallest Android powered phones out in the market.On the face of it, a small touchscreen may not seem to make sense for sake of usability, and so in the review we’ll find...
Conclusion: We can't give a final star rating to these two charming baby Android phones since Sony Ericsson wasn't able to provide us with ballpark pricing. Our guess is that they'll sell for $300 to $350 without a contract, and if that's the case, we give them a thumbs-up if you're looking for an incredibly pocketable Android smartphone.
Conclusion: So as you can probably tell, I liked the Mini Pro a lot. I also liked the Mini but felt that usability suffered a tiny bit too much to reach such a small size. With the Mini Pro though, Sony Ericsson have hit a happy medium between form and function – it’s nice and small, yet the keyboard allows it to be a truly usable device. It’s well built too and should last the usual knocks and bumps.

Excerpt: Also announced back in February during the Mobile World Congress , the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro is the sister model of the Xperia X10 mini but features a 4 row slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and the European version features dualband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/2100 MHz while the North American version supports triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 850/1900/2100 MHz.
Conclusion: Voice quality with incoming calls was good, and the volume was adequate. On the other end of the lineIn, however, clarity was much worse, and the other party said our voice was muffled and unclear, although the volume stayed decent. The battery of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro is rated at the paltry 3.5 hours of talk time in 3G mode, and 15 days of standby.
Pros: Physical QWERTY keyboard, Nice design with chrome accents, Good pictures and video, Great loudspeaker
Cons: Keys on the physical keyboard feel cramped, Handset is on the thick side
Summary: Qualcomm eh… sorry, Sony Ericsson taught us to expect devices with excellent reception, good speech quality and the X10 mini pro is no exception.
The phone vibration function is powerful enough, perhaps a little too powerful and the speaker ringing volume is loud without many distortions.
The device manages to leave a positive impression in general mostly due to its small size and straightforward design, even though it doesn’t come without its faults.
Excerpt: The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini Pro features a 2.55 inch capacitive touch screen that is capable of displaying 16 million colours, with a screen dimension of 240 x 320 pixels.
