The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro is a great compromise between usability and size, packing a full Qwerty keyboard and powerful Android operating system into a handset no bigger than a credit card. The slider design hides the keyboard behind the 2.5 inch touchscreen, which comes with its own virtual keyboard for when you want to use the handset in portrait mode, then easily slides out for typing longer emails and Facebook posts.
Like it's larger sibling, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro runs the Android operating system, which gives it the full range of smartphone capabilities, despite its size, such as web-browsing, email support and access to the Android Mobile Store with its huge range of apps and games. The X10 Mini Pro comes with the Sony Ericsson Timescape feature that brings together all your Facebook and Twitter updates into a single widget.
Those who want to use the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro as a media player can take advantage of the MicroSD card slot, which also comes in handy when using the excellent 5 Megapixel camera with LED flash. The biggest advantage of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro is its sheer portability, with a design that is no larger than the regular X10 Mini, yet packing in the Qwerty keyboard, this is a great messaging phone that manages to fit easily in your pocket.
