Xperia mini pro hits the UK

Popular high-street mobile phone retailer Carphone Warehouse has now listed the small Qwerty keyboard Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro, on contracts as low as £20 a month.

Sony Ericsson's Xperia mini pro is the update to the Xperia X10 mini pro which arrived in 2010, as the cut-down version of the large screen flagship X10 phone.

The earlier mobile shipped with a 2.55-inch TFT touch screen, a vertical slide-out keyboard, a 600MHz processor, 128MB of memory and the earlier Android 'Donut' 1.6 OS.

The new Xperia mini pro handset arrives with a 3-inch LED back-lit LCD capacitive touch screen and Sony Bravia engine, for more bright and vivid colours, a revamped slide out keyboard, along with a 1GHz CPU and 512MB of storage.

The latest mini pro has a 5 megapixel camera capable of HD 720p video recording, whilst running from the latest Android 'Gingerbread' 2.3, with the SE TimeScape app and Facebook Inside Xperia for more thorough social networking integration.

Carphone Warehouse is carrying the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro free on contracts, from mobile phone networks such as Orange, which is accompanied by 200 minutes, an unlimited text message bundle and a 250MB data allowance for £20 a month.
