Sony Ericsson Announces New Xperia Mini and Mini Pro Models; Running Android 2.3, Integrating Facebook
Sony Ericsson has just confirmed the successor for the Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro models. We’re talking about the Xperia Mini (pictured below) and Xperia Mini Pro models, names that SE chose instead of adding a “2” to the X10 Mini units, so they dropped the X10 out of the combination.
Both models run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, just like the other handsets from the Xperia series launched this year (Play, Arc, Neo, Pro). Xperia Mini and Mini Pro have quite a bunch of features in common, with the list of specs being the following:
- Display: 3 inch HVGA, Reality Display, Mobile BRAVIA Engine
- Connectivity: HSPA, WiFi, DLNA, A-GPS
- Camera: 5MP, autofocus, 720p video recording
- Memory: 2GB memory card preinstalled
- CPU: 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon
These phones also come with a technology called “Facebook inside Xperia”, a feature that brings social networking features to all areas of the phone, including picture gallery, music player and calendar. The difference between the Xperia Mini and Mini Pro (pictured below) is that the latter comes with a sliding QWERTY keyboard and it’s heavier, at 136 grams.
Q3 is the release time, but no info about the price yet.
