The Sony Ericsson Xperia lineup got some shiny new additions at MWC just two months ago, but if you thought that was all SE had to offer, you'd be wrong. The SonyEricsson Xperia SK17i codenamed Mango was leaked on Chinese forum IT168 and it seems to offer all that the X10 Mini Pro had, but this time with an HVGA screen sized between 3 and 3.2 inches. Don't be fooled by the Mango codename – by all visible clues the phone will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, not Windows Phone in any form. In addition, the skin seems similar to the UX one tailored for the tiny screen of the X10 Mini Pro.
In terms of hard silicon, under the hood we'd have a CPU clocked at 800MHz to 1GHz, and details seem to end here. But most importantly, a chiclet-style slide-out keyboard aims to boost your typing to the uber level. The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro might have well claimed the title of the longest cell phone name for such a minuscule handset, but didn't break any technological ground. What's your opinion of its successor, the SK17i – would you consider a handset with such a screen? Sound off in the comments!
