Sony Ericsson Unveils Next-Generation Xperia Minis


Sony Ericsson Unveils Next-Generation Xperia Minis

ASIA PACIFIC & SINGAPORE - Sony Ericsson unveils the new Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro, the latest additions to its Xperia family. Building on the success of the original mini series, these innovative smartphones come packed full of features, powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and run on the latest platform of Google’s Android – Gingerbread 2.3. Beautifully designed, the Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro both integrate best-in-class imaging and display technology from Sony, including Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine and HD video recording (720p).

The products offer a full multimedia entertainment experience. The Xperia mini and Xperia mini pro enables access to over 150,000 apps on the Android Market and has a 3-inch scratch-resistant, multi-touch glass screen. The improved user interface allows up to 16 apps displayed on the home screen. Facebook inside Xperia, a feature just announced for the Xperia family, provides a unique social media integration.

The Xperia mini pro brings the optimised slide-out keyboard with smart functionality first seen on the Xperia pro to a compact smartphone. A subtle but fast Type & Send functionality eliminates the need to open a dedicated app for each type of message, and Smart Keyboard triggers predictive messaging actions automatically when the user slides out the keyboard. The Xperia mini pro also comes pre-loaded with Office Suite and McAfee antivirus software, letting consumers manage documents and e-mails instantly and securely while on the move.

Sony Ericsson also unveils today a new integration, Facebook inside Xperia, which will be included in the new Xperia mini and mini pro and soon to be available across the wider Xperia range. Facebook inside Xperia integrates social connections throughout the phone, by making Facebook immediately accessible from the most used areas of the phone such as the picture gallery, music player, phonebook and calendar. As people are becoming increasingly reliant on their smartphones for instant communication, Sony Ericsson is enabling people to ‘like’, share and comment more easily than ever before with Facebook inside Xperia.

Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro and Xperia mini with HD will be available globally in selected markets from Q3.
