Sony Ericsson triples Android lineup

Sony Ericsson signaled a major push into smartphones at Mobile World Congress with several new smartphones headlined by two surprising shrinks of its flagship X10. The new X10 mini and X10 mini pro are smaller, less expensive counterparts and use 2.5-inch, 320x240 touchscreens as well as 600MHz processors instead of the 1GHz Snapdragon. They both run a heavily customized version of Android 1.6 with Mediascape for music, photos and video as well as Timescape for a unified messaging front end.

The two similarly share 5-megapixel cameras, 3G, GPS and Wi-Fi and differ only in form factor: the X10 mini is a straightforward touch-only variant, while the X10 mini pro packs a slide-out QWERTY keyboard to keep the screen unobstructed. A 2GB microSD card is bundled in the box.

Both of the Android devices will ship in the spring and will have variants that support 850MHz HSPA for their 3G, making a launch for AT&T, Bell, Rogers or Telus likely.
