The XPERIA X10 Mini, first seen at the Mobile World Congress back in February, has shown up on our radars once again. 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.
