Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro also known as Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro SK17i is a great android phone, comes with 512MB phone memory and a 2GB SD card (but is expandable up to 32GB). Amazingly fast as this runs on 1Ghz processor and running the latest Android 2.3 platform. Also capable of recording HD movies and the screen is a scratch proof mobile Bravia, I would say the picture quality is actually very good!
What I like this phone is that it has a QWERTY keyboard, which enables me to type faster compare to the ordinary phone keyboard or on an on-screen keyboard. It can also be use to tether with your laptop or use it as a modem, all you have to do is connect your phone via USB cable to your laptop-desktop and share your 3G internet from the phone to a computer. You can find this on the settings on your xperia mini pro, under the wireless & network section.
Battery is ok, when used a lot on internet, it would only last a day, but with a little facebook use and email checks, it would give you a reasonable 2 days use. I actually like the phone due to its size and style and my husband does too, so he swapped my Sony Ericsson Xperia mini pro to his Sony Ericsson Xperia Ray. Anyway, the xperia mini pro is not as pricey as some other android phone so I would recommend it to anyone who wants a cheaper android phone that works brilliantly with mobile internet, music and some apps. Compact although a little heavy compare to other android phones, but it does not really matter as it looks really great for its price!
