MWC 2010: Xperia X10 Mini surfaces

Two dinky editions based on the full sized Xperia X10 smartphone have been unveiled by Sony Ericsson.

The first of these will be a touchscreen mobile with few physical keys, whilst the X10 Mini Pro will add in a full QWERTY keypad to make messaging a breeze.

Sony Ericsson also released further information about its TimeScape service, which will become a core part of the Xperia X10 and its mini varieties.

It is essentially a system that allows users with multiple messaging and social networking accounts to have all of their information delivered to the same place; their X10.

The Mini X10s will feature five megapixel cameras with autofocus and the media playback provided by the built-in software will behave intelligently, providing users with suggestions for artists they may like based on your current library and notifying them of online videos from YouTube featuring their favourite musicians.

Sony Ericsson should be able to make the Xperia range a little bit more appealing to the mass market with the X10 Mini and Mini Pro, although raising the profile could be difficult given the amount of competition it is set to face.
