New Sony Ericsson and HTC handsets are now on Three

UK mobile phone network Three has announced two new handsets are now available through them, the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro and the HTC Wildfire in exclusive colours. Both these handsets are now purchasable through Three's One Plan tariff, which was unveiled last week with a six month free premium Spotify account.

Effectively, the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro is the same model as the Xperia X10 Mini, only with a slide-out physical Qwerty keyboard where that phone is just a cut down version of the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10. The Mini Pro only has a 2.6-inch touch screen, where its larger counterpart arrives with a 4-inch display although both run version 1.6 of Android at this time, with their own overlay the OS.

The HTC Wildfire could also be seen as a lite version of another handset, where this time it's the HTC Desire phone. The Wildfire has a less powerful processor with a 3.2-inch screen, as compared to the 3.7-inch display of the Desire although both arrive with the more recent 2.1 version of Android plus the HTC Sense overlay to that very OS.

Three have these handsets in exclusive colours to them, which is a black case to the Mini Pro and metal mocha on the Wildfire. The two mobile phones are available free on a £30 a month contract, which includes 2000 minutes to any network, 5000 minutes to any Three phone numbers, 5000 texts and 1GB data in addition to free Skye, Twitter, Windows Live Messenger.

The handsets are also purchasable on a pay as you go contracts, with the HTC Wildfire coming in at £199 and the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro costing £249.
