We already know about SE Xperia X10, which came out earlier with the large 4′ inch touch screen with lots of features. X10 Mini from Sony Ericsson is also the smallest Android-based (operating system) mobile. The goal of X10 mini is to produce a mobile phone which technically can match Xperia X10. Whether this is successful we will look at below.
Design and format
The actual phone like its nickname “mini” is small, its dimensions are 83 x 50 x 16 mm, and the weight is only 86 grams. The size and weight make it particularly easy to fit the phone in your pocket, whether it is trousers or shirt. It’s clear that Sony Ericsson has focused on easy transportation.
As seen in the picture, SE X10 Mini is lighter square design. This has been a necessity in order to accommodate all the electronics on a relatively small area. The phone is made of black shiny plastic and some may have the attitude that metal bodies are better, I prefer plastic, because I think it gives a better grip on the phone.
The display of X10 Mini 2.5′ inches, which seems like a fair size for a touch mobile of this size. It seems logical for Sony Ericsson to launch a counterpart to the Xperia X10. This is because that the Xperia X10 pushed the limit to how big a screen you could cram into a mobile, presses X10 Mini limit to how small you can make it. It is refreshing to see variation in the market, and X10 Mini is a good bet for a small touch-enabled mobile phone.
X10 Mini Features
The phone uses QVGA resolution for the screen and the screen is operated with even the lightest pressure. The processor is the size of 600 Mhz, which is an excellent size for a mobile in this format. Fast operation and navigation is a hallmark of X10 Mini. Sony Ericsson has also undertaken a restructuring of the interface from the larger model, which plays well with the phone’s size.
Big pluses for X10 Mini includes, the infinitely many “home” screen options and corner shortcuts that provide quick and easy access to “home” screens, and messaging functions and more. Again, easy and quick navigation. It is also possible to customize the widget to display on each screen, making it easy to find what you’re looking for. The size of the screen while doing that you will not find lots of shortcut icons, which can often be found in smartphones, but screen size is taken into consideration, it is quite appropriate.
Incredible as it may sound, Sony Ericsson has managed to incorporate a 5 megapixel camera with both auto-focus, LED flash / lighting and geo-tagging of photos (which assigns the short, using built-in GPS, where the picture was taken ).
The small mobile phone is equipped with 128 MB internal memory plus a 2 GB microSD card (included). There is further opportunity to log on to the wireless network using WiFi functionality, including support for both Bluetooth microSUB, digital compass and 3.5 mm audio jack, so you can use your regular headphones for listening to music, watch video and much more. In order to proceed out of the tangent, also included an FM radio in stereo, which also has RDS (radio traffic). Sony Ericsson’s own actions, you are including TrackID, which can analyze music and tell you what it is, which is quite a nifty feature for those interested in music.
