Sony Ericsson also showcased their debuts at their booth at the MWC. We got the chance to spdiscontinue some more quality time with the three recent offerings and do several recent shots as well in a demo video.

Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro

A QWERTY-equipped version of the handset we liked so much in our recent preview is nothing but fine news. The Sony Ericsson Vivaz pro retains all remarkable features of the original Vivaz and adds powerful texting. And when you think that it only adds 2mm of extra thickness, it starts to see an even better deal.

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini and Mini pro

Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 mini tries to capitalize on the popularity of the original XPERIA X10 by providing a similar experience in a much more compact shell.

From what we saw, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 has excellent performance with smooth and snappy interface that is pretty nice to use. We guess that the reduced resolution more than made up for the slower Central Processing Units (CPU) (600 Mega Hertz (MHz) vs 1 Giga Hertz (GHz) on the original X10).

The qwerty-fied Mini pro is not much thicker than the regular Sony Ericsson Mini. The full keyboard is an awesome boost to productivity with this phone, as it lacks a virtual on-classy screen QWERTY keyboard (we guess the classy screen is too small to accommodate that). Both phones are offered with various back panels to create them as customizable as possible.

We managed to capture a quick demo of the recent custom user interface running on top the regular Android Operating System (OS) on the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini. Enjoy!

Aside from the form factor and custom UI, the XPERIA X10 Mini (the pro as well) is unusual with another thing too. It's the first Sony Ericsson phone to utilize a special lock-shaped 3.5mm audio jack.

The recent stereo headset that ships with the Minis matches it perfectly down to the proprietary jack. Despite that odd solution, the Minis can still utilize standard third-party 3.5mm stereo headphones. It's only the proprietary one however that makes utilize of the extra contact points.

Sony Ericsson Aspen

The Sony Ericsson Aspen was announced not so long ago and it represents the more uncommon breed of QWERTY bars with a touchscreen. The last PocketPersonal Computer (PC) with that functionality we saw was Samsung i780. Rumor has it that a certain HTC Trophy handset is under way too, but it's yet to be confirmed.

The Aspen boasts the same human curvature design as all other recent Sony Ericsson phones. The QWERTY keyboard is definitely crammed up, but all the other system keys are quite large.
