Xperia X10 sized up against X10 mini’s in photoshoot

in News, X10 mini & X10 mini pro

Xperia X10 and X10 miniThe more time I’ve had to reflect on the Xperia X10 mini & mini pro handsets the more I think it was an inspired decision by Sony Ericsson. A lot of the groundwork on the interface has already been done with the Xperia X10 and whilst the larger handset will appeal to those who demand the more premium handset, the X10 mini & mini pro should have mass market attraction.

I came across some nice pictures comparing both the larger Xperia X10 smartphone against the smaller Xperia X10 mini and mini pro from Fontaine Virgile’s Flickr photostream. The X10 mini makes the Xperia X10 look huge. I really like what they’ve done with the corner shortcuts too. I’ll still be getting the larger Xperia X10 on launch, but I’m now eyeing the X10 mini for the wife! Check out some of the pictures after the jump.

so want the full size one but will it ever be released!! I’m out of contract now and if the HTC Desire turns up before the X10 in the UK I’ll be having one of those instead.
Being new to Android does the X10 having 1.6 on it limit its potential to run newer programmes?

@Dave G

The X10 is slated for release late this month and Sony have said themselves that keeping the X10 at Android 1.6 for now is of negligable consequence to us the consumers. When the update for 2.0 comes out by the end of this year the only major improvement will be the X10’s 16m colour screen will be unlocked to its full potential rather than being kept at 65K which is Android 1.6’s major limitation. However the human eye will never really to properly tell the difference between 65K and 16m. In other words, don’t be too bothered about 1.6, its not the end of the world.

When the Flash Player 10.1 comes out, it will need 2.0 as far as I know which I think many users will consider pretty significant. Think of all the flash games and video sites you’ll be missing out on with it. Plus with Flash, users will finally be able experience the web exactly how they do on the desktop!
