Sony Ericsson introduces two new Android 2.3 models, the Xperia Mini and Xperia Mini Pro
Sony Ericcson introduced two compact Android handsets today, the Xperia Mini and the Xperia Mini Pro. Both models will be launched with Android 2.3 aboard and with a 1GHz Snapdragon processor under the hood. Both handsets have a 3 inch touchscreen and a 5MP camera that captures video at HD. According to the manufacturer, that makes the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini the smallest device in the world that can record HD video.

The difference between the two devices is that the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro is equipped with a slide out landscape QWERTY keyboard which accounts for the slightly larger size of that model. The Xperia Mini Pro is  3.6 x 2.1 x 0.7 inches when closed, and weighs 4.8 ounces.

Both GSM  models will hit the global market sometime in July and thus far, pricing has not been disclosed. It is not known whether or not the models will make it to the States. AT&T has offered the Sony Ericsson Xperia 10 since last year, but has not said if it will add the two new units to its lineup.

I said a small touch screen device couldn't be done... I was wrong. This phone looks sexy.

I wish verizon would pick up this but they seem to not care about anything small enough to fit in your pocket.

These have to great phones. Look how happy everyone is in the advertisement!!

One of the developing complaints among the mobile device blogging crowd is the move to bigger and bigger screens without any real attempt to make a quality smart phone with a smaller screens for those who are not interested. These two phones are great counter programming for those who do not want a 4" or bigger screen. Hope they do make the states.

Truthfully, I have no idea how good of a devices Sony Erickson puts out. But, they do look nice.

So, this time the corner shortcut will "Fan Out" to hold more short cut. Smart! Just like the ELSE Intuition Mobile Device. Wish We can a Fan-Out short-cut any corner on the screen an fully costomizable and the Fan Out should be Multi layered. eg: If one holds his/her thumb on a Faned-out shortcut, that shortcut should again fan out if it has other sub folders within it.
Would have been better if done in an nHD resolution screen.
