[MWC 2010] Looks like the previous leaks that we brought to you on the miniaturized XPERIA X10 with its multicoloredoptions were true. Sony Ericsson has just announced the XPERIA X10 Mini and the XPERIA X10 Mini Pro at MWC today. Both phones have identical specifications, though the X10 Mini Pro is slightly thicker, due to the inclusion of the QWERTY keyboard. One of the more interesting features of the X10 Mini is its “Four-corner” control, which allows you to place customizable shortcut icons on the four corners of the phone’s display. Despite it being a tiny device, it’s apparently well suited for one-handed operation, which is certainly good news. Check out a video on the phones in the full article. Aside from that, thanks to it being powered by Android 1.6, the phone will also have access to the Android Marketplace, which is growing rapidly, and is fast becoming a strong competitor to Apple’s AppStore. Features of the XPERIA X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro include:
