When Sony Ericsson left the Xperia X10 out in the sun at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, it shrank to the pint-sized Xperia X10 Mini. But it turned out to be such a happy accident that Son Eric slapped a keyboard in its new mini-me and created the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro.

Like the X10 Mini and the X10, there's Android on board, but you can actually type on this little guy -- there's a full Qwerty keyboard stashed underneath the 65mm (2.55-inch) QVGA touchscreen.

We'll have to take the X10 Mini Pro for a full test-drive before we can vouch for the keyboard's quality, but we did note that it's bigger than a Palm Pre or a BlackBerry's keyboard -- both of which are a pleasure to type on -- so it has potential for goodness.

There's Wi-Fi, GPS and an FM radio on board, as well as the blue-tinged user interface tweaks Son Eric hopes will separate its Android-powered phones from the pack.

We'll have to wait till summer before we see the X10 Mini Pro in stores, so click 'Continue' to have a nibble of this bite-sized beauty via our hands-on photos.

The X10 Mini Pro works in landscape or portrait mode, with the slide-out keyboard automatically launching the phone into landscape.
All the usual Android widgets are on board, as well as access to the Android Market to download more.
The back of the X10 Mini Pro has a 5-megapixel camera with an LED photo light.

REVIEW

The most beautiful phone ever has one wildly annoying issue

he Samsung Galaxy S8's fast speeds and fantastic curved screen make it a top phone for 2017, but the annoying fingerprint reader could sour your experience.
