Sony Ericsson Xperia X10Mini

There’s never a dull moment with the Xperia X10 Mini. It’s small, easy to operate, and comfortable to hold. The lightweight handset features a 2.5- inch capacitive touchscreen. The Android OS (v1.6) runs on the Mini’s Qualcom MSM7227 600MHz processer, making the UI extremely zippy. Sony Ericsson’s TimeScape UI works well and is easy to navigate using just your thumb. The music player is simple and capable of providing loud and clear tones.
The FM radio didn’t work out too well, as sound reception wasn’t very good. The Mini supports 3GP and MPEG4 video, but the screen size and resolution don’t make it easy to watch for too long. The Mini is 3G-enabled and it also supports EDGE and Wi-Fi. Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP is also available, and it packs in GPS with apps like Google Maps, GeoTags and WisePilot. Although the small screen becomes an issue, the handset handles the GPS software really well. The Android browser is great, and its zoom feature is a real blessing. Push email is also available and it’s really easy to set up your email accounts. The phone packs a very capable 5 megapixel camera into its tiny body, but we were unable to access any of the settings except for the scene mode and fl ash. Photos came out really well, with colors and clarity that do justice to the price. The 950 mAh battery allowed over a day and a half of usage with email, geotagging, and IM turned on. Talk time averaged at around 3 hours 15 minutes, which is quite impressive.
 However, the battery cannot be removed, so if the handset hangs, there’s no quick fi x. The X10 Mini’s Rs 16,475 price tag may seem a little steep, but for all it has to off er, it really isn't. If you’re looking for a handset that does everything, is easy to use, and is as cute as button, you can’t go wrong with the X10 Mini.
