x10 mini

The XPERIA X10 Mini, first seen at the Mobile World Congress back in February, has shown up on our radars once again. CoolSmartphone.com has posted pictures of the Mini making an appearance in Vodafone’s monthly magazine, under the ‘coming soon’ section.

Although the X10 Mini doesn’t offer a slide out QWERTY keyboard like the Mini Pro (thanks, Rana), Sony Ericsson have managed to pack in a 5 megapixel, geo tagging camera with auto focus along with video recording capabilities.

The 2.55” capacitive display has a resolution of 240 x 320, with a 600MHz processor and 128MB RAM running the device. You’ll find a microSD card for storage, which comes with a 2GB card as standard.

Even though the X10 Mini is running Android 1.6, just like its big brother - the X10, we still think it is going to appeal to a lot of Android fans. Despite being slightly underpowered compared to some other smartphones on the market, it looks like it could be a good (even cute) portable budget device. Android 2.1, of course, would have been a nice touch but we fully expect it to be upgraded later this year.

The exact release date for this phone is currently not known, but it’s likely not too far away.

You can head over to GSMArena for a detailed 6-page review of this little devil.

John's been addicted to technology ever since he tinkered with his first custom built PC when he was 10 years old. He's also the proud owner of seven Amazon Kindles, but only because he destroyed the first six.

    The X10 Mini does not have the slide-out QWERTY keyboard... the X10 Mini Pro does.

    Definitely getting the Mini when it comes out... in Australia.

      Thanks Rana, I had John make the correction. The press release was a bit ambiguous about whether both models contain the keyboard or not, so now it's corrected.
