Sony Ericsson has created a mini-me for its hotly anticipated Android phone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 -- the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini.

Like the X10, the X10 Mini runs Google's Android operating system, but this is the smallest Android phone yet. it's about half the size of the X10, perfect for popping in a pocket or balancing on the nose of a small chihuahua.

The X10 Mini has a 65mm (2.55-inch) QVGA touchscreen, with shortcuts in each corner to help you handle the tiny phone with one hand. The pocket rocket maxes out at 83 by 50 by 16mm, but it still includes a microSD memory card slot, a 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and GPS.

The X10 Mini will be flaunting the small stuff in the summer of this year. In the meantime, click 'Continue' to check out our hands-on photos.

The X10 Mini was designed to be used with just one hand, and like its bigger brother, it's got a responsive capacitive touchscreen to make tapping painless. We think that if you have big hands though, the X10 Mini could easily get lost in your meat paws.
