Not one, but three cuties have been rolled out Sony Ericsson at the  Mobile World Congress at Barcelona. The debut of the smartphones has marked a significant milestone for the company as the three new phones have been built on the touch-screen 3G Vivaz technology and the Android-based Xperia x10. To arrive in retail stores by the second quarter of the current year, the three phones are already generating a buzz with enthusiasts queuing up to have a peek.

Most of the attention is on the Symbian-based Vivaz Pro, which has been presented as a device that is just under 2 mm thicker than the original Vivaz. Incorporating an 8GB microSD card and a 5.1 megapixel camera, the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro lets the user to go about capturing video in 720p HD. The handset will sport black or white hues. The mobilephone adds a QWERTY keyboard that slides out from underneath the 3.2-inch touchscreen, making it even the more luring.

Meanwhile, the company also brought to the podium its new Xperia x10 handsets Xperia x10 mini and the Xperia x10 Pro that run the Android 1.6 operating system. Made to access Gmail, Google Maps, and the Google Android mart, the two devices come sporting a 2.55-inch touchscreen and 5-megapixel camera. Sony Ericsson has offered the Xperia x10 Pro slightly heavier than the mini, 4.2 ounces compared to 3.1 ounces to be precise. This is due to the fact that the Xperia x10 Pro comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard almost akin to that of the Vivaz Pro.

The new Xperia handsets have been spruced up with new color schemes, with the x10 mini to be offered in black, pearl white, lime, pink, red, and silver. Meanwhile, you can pick your  x10 mini pro comes in black or red hues.
