Christmas Gift Guide

Do you fancy the sinuous curves of the Sony Ericsson Vivaz, but can't live with an on-screen keyboard? Rest easy, Qwerty-lovers, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is here.

The keyboard only adds 2.5mm to the Vivaz's svelte thickness, but it does shave down some of the phone's features. Instead of an 8.1-megapixel camera, the Vivaz Pro has a 5.1-megapixel snapper. But there's still 720p HD video recording and a 81mm (3.2-inch) screen.

Wi-Fi, GPS and a standard 3.5mm headphone jack are all present and correct, as is a microSD memory card slot. Sony Ericsson tells us we'll have to wait until summer for the Vivaz Pro, so slake your Qwerty thirst with our hands-on photos by clicking 'Continue' -- but not before you've seen our video from the Mobile World Congress show floor.

The Vivaz Pro has the Symbian operating system on board, which we don't think is the easiest or most fun OS out there. Sony Ericsson has put five customisable shortcuts on the home screen, however, to make your favourite features easier to find.

The 5.1-megapixel snapper is assisted by an LED photo light. Stay tuned for our full review, when we'll take the Vivaz Pro's camera for a test drive that will make the Monaco Grand Prix look like a Sunday drive in a three-wheeled car.
