O2 get Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro

Mobile phone network O2 has unveiled it will be carrying the successor to the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro – the Xperia Mini Pro, when the handset arrives in June.

O2 is the first network to announce it will be carrying the Xperia Mini Pro, where the phone is essentially the replacement to the phone born from the Xperia X10 flagship mobile from early last year.

Sony Ericsson’s new Xperia Mini Pro handset will arrive with a 3-inch 320x480 LED-backlit LCD capacitive touch screen, whilst running from the fast 1GHz Scorpion Qualcomm QSD8255 Snapdragon chipset, with support for the larger 32GB microSD cards.

The updated handset runs from Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 OS straight from the box, along with an improved TimeScape UI and a physical slide-out Qwerty keyboard.

The Pro also has a multi-touch screen reality display and the Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine, which was both missing from the original device and has recently been seen in their Xperia Arc handset.

Both the Xperia X10 mini and Xperia mini have 5megapixel cameras, although the newer model now has HD video recording capabilities in 720p.

O2 hasn’t released any tariff details or pricings for the Xperia Mini Pro, although they are currently retailing the original mobile phone. This appears on the network on a £21.50 monthly contract with 100 minutes and 500 text messages, where One Mobile Ring believes this will be mirrored with the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro.
