Sony Ericsson intros Xperia minis

Gingerbread biccies

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Sony Ericsson has outed 2011's successors to 2010's Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro.

The new ones take the same names as their predecessors, minus the 'X10' and with a SE's newfound e.e. cummings-like disdain for capital letters.

Sony Ericsson Mini Pro

Both mini and mini pro - we will use capitals hereafter - are based on 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPUs and run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Like the recently release Xperia Arc, they have "Reality Display" screens, here 3in in size with a 320 x 480 resolution. There's a 5Mp, 8x digital zoom camera on the back of each model, plus all the customary Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and HSPA 3G connectivity.

Sony Ericsson Mini

The one key difference between the Mini and Mini Pro: the latter has a slide-down Qwerty keyboard which bulks it out a bit. The Pro is 92 x 53 x18mm, 136g; the Mini 88 x 52 x 16mm, 94g.

Both will go on sale sometime between the start of July and the end of September. ®
