Its Android time again after a very long break. The last Android smartphone that was reviewed here on Mobility Nigeria is the T-mobile G1 way back in May 2009.
This time, we bring you a unique Android smartphone that was recently released in June, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro. It is the smallest smartphone that I have ever seen. It is so small that at first I was scared that it would be absolutely unusable. Here are the specifications:
- Android v1.6 (upgrade to v2.1 coming in Q4 2010)
- Weight: 120g
- Size: 90 x 52 x 17 mm
- 2.55-inch TFT capacitive touchscreen of 240 x 320 pixels
- Scratch-resistant surface display
- slide-out QWERTY keyboard
- 5 megapixel autofocus camera with LED
- GPRS, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, HSUPA
- Wi-fi, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, USB cable
- Qualcomm MSM7227 600MHz processor
- 170mb RAM
- Memory: 212mb + microSD slot (2GB card in retail box)
- GPS with A-GPS support
- Stereo FM radio with RDS
I have had it for a few hours, and have found it quite usable. Surprise, surprise. The QWERTY keyboard is good and the display responsive.
At the moment, I am installing and configuring it to my taste, and in the next several days, this cute babe will be put through its paces. Let me know if you have any particular questions that you would want addressed in the upcoming reviews.
In the meantime, here are a few pictures:
