Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro Review

 

Take a cursory glance at the smartphone market and you'd be forgiven for assuming bigger always means better. Android smartphones are already available with vast screens, rumors suggest the iPhone 5 will introduce a larger display, and Windows Phone...

The Sony Ericsson XPERIA mini pro is definitely a niche phone. While the rest of the market is targeting bigger screens for multimedia and browsing addicts, manufacturers doing their level best to offer larger displays on their cheaper devices, the...

Xperia Mini Pro review

 

There was a time, not too long ago, when having the smallest phone was a mark of prestige for handset manufacturers. Then HTC came along and convinced us that 4.3-inch smartphones are actually...

Excellent keyboard ; Much cheaper than comparable phones ; Improves on X10 Mini Pro in most respects

Resolution is still pretty low ; Chunky, less pocketable than most ; Software isn’t perfect

The few cutbacks Sony Ericsson has made appear reasonable and mostly peripheral

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro review: No small affair

 

Sony Ericsson have always done a good job of putting big ideas in a small package. The original Xperia mini lineup wasn't ridiculously powerful but had plenty of personality. The pint-sized smartphones did well on the market and you...

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro Review

 

There are not many phone manufacturers nowadays that are brave enough to venture outside of the well-known and safe field of doing large black slabs, stuffed with dual-core processors. Indeed, from design standpoint, the times are much simpler now than...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro

 

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini pro is not an entry-level smartphone. Far from it, in fact. As small as it may seem, it actually packs some fairly impressive hardware and software features. One only need to spend a few minutes using it to fully...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro Review

 

Power comes in all sizes.

Very fast; Snugly fits in your pocket or palm; Full QWERTY keyboard; Good design; Gingerbread comes pre-installed

Keyboard can become uncomfortable after long use; Cumbersome browsing experience

The real magic begins when you slide out the keyboard, which looks, for lack of a better word, cute. The first thing you’ll notice is that the keyboard is nicely spaced, with Function and Symbol keys to use the alternate keys. The full QWERTY keyboard...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro

 

The new Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro is more than just a petite phone. The Android 2.3 device comes with ample of features in a tiny body, including a slide-out physical QWERTY keyboard and a moderately snug 3.0-inch screen. Find out more after the jump.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro Hands On

 

We also got a chance to play with the Xperia Mini‘s slightly chubbier sibling (not that the original wasn't on the portly side itself). The specs are the same as the Mini, 1 Ghz Snapdragon, 5 MP shooter with 720p recording. Although we've been assured...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro - User Review - Tech2

 

Sony's Xperia Mini Pro is the perfect phone for those who desire a small yet feature-rich phone. The Xperia Mini Pro is the successor to the Xperia X10

The Xperia Mini Pro is a great phone to have especially for its compact size and QWERTY keypad. It has got the looks and a long list of features. In short it has *almost* everything an Xperia Arc has packed into a tiny phone. It’s a great deal...
