Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Hands-On at MWC 2011

February 17, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Earlier, we had reported when the Xperia Pro handset was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. We got a chance to go hands-on with the device, and we have now got some hands-on pictures of the device to share with you.

As you might know, the device is the latest business Android smartphone from Sony Ericsson, and it also has plenty of features for being an “ultimate” entertainment device.

The specs of this device look pretty impressive with a 3.7-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 854 x 480, an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and Bravia Graphics Engine technology.

The device, which runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, measures in at 120 x 57 x 13.5 mm and weighs 140 grams and also comes with a full QWERTY slide-out keypad, an 8GB microSD card, and will be available in silver, red and black.

When we got our hands on the device, it felt unusually comfortable. The keyboard is well spaced out, and felt natural and quite fast.

And we are pretty that even those of you who are used to touchscreen interfaces will find the keyboard quite comfortable.

The design and build of the device is impressive, except for the very small volume control buttons and a rather bizarrely placed power button.

But there were a few issues with the software on the devices that were demoed. As you might know, the device runs a Sony Ericsson customized version of Gingerbread and it didn’t run as smoothly as expected.

But, there was no such problem on the Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc. Therefore, we are expecting the company to work on it before launching it on the market.

However, the device looks good and we particularly loved the silver version.
