Leave a Comment
Sony Ericsson’s surprise smartphone for MWC 2011 was the XPERIA Pro, a business-centric handset running Android and packing a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Like the XPERIA Neo there’s a 3.7-inch 854 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, only the Pro adds a full QWERTY keyboard that uses Smart Keyboard software to automatically load up predictive messaging depending on the app you’re in when you pop the ‘board out.

There’s also HDMI, WiFi, Bluetooth and the Sony Mobile BRAVIA engine for the display, an FM radio and GPS. Powering it all is a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor while cellular connectivity is dual or triband UMTS and quadcore GSM. The camera is a 8-megapixel unit on the back and a 2-megapixel on the front.
The Sony Ericsson XPERIA Pro will launch in selected markets from the end of Q2 2011. Like the XPERIA Neo there will be three colors: red, black and silver.
