The latest handset to come from the guys and girls at Sony Ericsson, is the Xperia X10 Mini, which although a large mouthful of words; as the name suggests, is a very little handset. But don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s size is going to reflect it’s functionality. Despite being only 83mm tall and 50mm wide, the Mini is still a fully fledged smartphone boasting Googles Android Operating System; albeit version 1.6 which may not be the latest version, but is still pouring with the functionality that has seen Android OS rocket into the position of becoming one of the most popular operating systems available today, currently only second to Apples iPhone OS; with the gap between the two shrinking at an alarming rate (from Apples point of view anyway).
The X10 Mini boasts a 2.55″ TFT Capacative Touchscreen, a Qualcomm MSM 7227 600MHz processor, 5.0 Megapixel Camera with flash, Micro SD support, HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, which would be a pretty impressive tech spec for a handset twice it’s size. The X10 Mini also benefits from the same Timescape and Mediascape proprietary User Interfaces as it’s older sibling, the Xperia X10, which handle Social Media Integration (Timescape) and offer complete media integration (Mediascape). The two UI’s are both very good at what they do, offering almost unrivalled levels of simplicty and ease of use.
The X10 Mini is available from Free, on a £15 per month contract which puts it in the direct firing line of the HTC Wildfire, another low-cost smartphone which looks to offer fully fledged smartphone functionaility at a fraction of the price.
