The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro is an ideal smartphone for prolific text messagers, thanks to a QWERTY keyboard which slides out from beneath the screen. In this article I will look at this and the other messaging attributes of the phone.
There is no doubting that text messaging is one of the most popular means of communicating these days. The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro is ideally placed to capitalise on the popularity of text messaging. As mentioned, the handset boasts a keyboard which slides out to reveal itself from beneath the screen and conveniently slides back when not in use. The keyboard has physical buttons, offering an alternative to the on screen keyboard that most other smartphones employ. The majority of mobile phone users will be familiar with the layout of the keyboard, as it is the same as laptop and desktop computers. This makes text entry easy and quick but also comfortable, as it can be used with two hands for speed and efficiency when typing. The keyboard is great for people who send a lot of text messages but also lends itself to typing emails, searching the internet and editing documents in formats such as MS Word.
As a messaging device, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro certainly has the hardware, but the handset also supports various messaging formats so you can make the most of the keyboard. Emails can be viewed, written and sent using the handset and of course you can also send MMS messages to which you can attach files of various formats such as photos, video and sound clips. As the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro utilised the popular Android operating system, users are able to download apps from the Android Market, providing further messaging options with popular offerings including WhatsApp, Viber and Skype, which I cover in more detail in other articles.
Aside from its messaging capabilities, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro comes with a great all round package of features including a 5 megapixel camera (and a front facing camera for video calls via Skype), powerful 1 GHz processor and high resolution touchscreen. Internet browsing via 3G and Wi-Fi is also included, as well as the ability to carry out social networking with apps for popular sites like Facebook and Twitter available.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro is well equipped to carry out many different tasks, but it excels at messaging via formats such as SMS and email thanks to features like its keyboard.
