Sony Ericsson unveils Xperia Mini and Mini Pro handsets

It's often said the best things in life come in small packages...

Sony Ericsson has officially unveiled the Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro handsets with the two micro devices acting as updated versions of last year's X10 range.

Despite their pint sized proportions, the phones feature many of the features found in bigger brother smartphone the Xperia Arc, with both devices boasting a crisp 3-inch 'reality display' screen. This is fuelled by a Mobile Bravia Engine, which apparently reduces image noise while improving colour, sharpness and contrast.

The phones, available in a range of colours, are also capable of high definition 720p video recording, with Sony Ericsson claiming the Xperia mini is the smallest Android phone to have such a feature. There’s also a decent enough 5-megapixel camera on the back, partnered with a front facing VGA offering.

 
Under the bonnet, the Xperia mini is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and utilises the latest 2.3 Gingerbread version of Android. The pro version features a QWERTY keyboard for those who like the old fashioned method of tapping buttons.

Sony Ericsson is also rather proud of new feature, Facebook Inside, which simply put means that every aspect of the phone is connected to the social network, much like the soon to be released HTC ChaChaCha. Features like the music player, the picture and video gallery, phone book and calendar all have Facebook connectivity, meaning that you'll be able to share your every move with friends.

The phones are available later this year sometime around Autumn, with pricing unconfirmed at time of writing.
