Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 pro specifications:
Sony Ericsson uses their custom UI over Android in Xperia X10. Also it has 8MP camera and 1GHZ processor. As we said, those specs have changed much in the new models. Xperia X10 mini and Xperia X10 pro have 5MP camera and Qualcomm 677MHZ processor. The Android version installed is 1.6, which would be upgradable to any of the latest versions. You may think negative about the 65K color screen in such a device. But actually its more than enough for a smartphone as we have seen it in HTC HD2. Both device supports 2G and 3G networks of almost all types. The device has special curved design to the backside that makes it very comfortable on hand.
The common features found in both devices include;
Accelerometer sensor enabled and scratch proof screen.
3.5mm audio audio jack.
5MP camera with auto focus, LED flash and video recording. Images at 2560х1920 pixels resolution.
