Xperia� pro

13 February 2011

Xperia™ pro combines intuitive and fast messaging with multimedia features from Sony
Xperia™ neo gives consumers a new way to experience the best of Android and the best of Sony multimedia
February 13, 2011, Barcelona, Spain – Sony Ericsson today unveils the Xperia™ neo and Xperia™ pro, the newest additions to the new generation of Xperia™ smartphones. Closely following the launch of the Xperia™ arc smartphone earlier this year, these latest smartphones also feature cutting edge technology from Sony and an exceptional multimedia experience on the latest version of the Android™ platform – Gingerbread.


As well as best-in-class imaging and display technology from Sony, the Xperia™ pro combines an optimized slide-out keyboard with smart functions to create a fast messaging experience. Featuring an ergonomically crafted keyboard, Sony Ericsson has focused on integrating the hardware with clever messaging functions for a perfect user experience. Xperia™ pro introduces the subtle but fast Type & Send functionality eliminating the need to open a dedicated app for each type of message, and Smart Keyboard that triggers predictive messaging actions automatically when the user slides out the keyboard.

Xperia™ pro is also the ideal business phone for Android fans coming complete with a set of professional functions such as syncing your email, calendar and contacts in a secure way and the pre-loaded Office Suite Pro lets consumers view and edit office documents directly on the phone.

Steve Walker, Head of Marketing, Sony Ericsson said, “We want to be a leader in Android and with Xperia™ neo and Xperia™ pro, we are now are offering excellent, innovative Android choices for consumers. These latest devices combine stunning design with state-of-the-art Sony technology and a new faster messaging experience on the Xperia™ pro, creating an entertaining smartphone experience.”

The best of Sony technology once again features in both Xperia™ pro and Xperia™ neo. The Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA® Engine delivers exceptional visual brilliance and a crystal clear image which enhances the overall entertainment experience. Sony’s award-winning Exmor R™ for mobile sensor enables the capture of high quality, bright pictures and HD videos even in low light. All pictures and videos can be shared on an HD TV in your living room via the built in HDMI-connector.

Xperia™ neo builds on the stunning design language that Sony Ericsson has become known with a unique shape that not only looks good, but is ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in the user’s hand, especially when taking pictures.

Both smartphones will launch on the latest version of the Android™ platform providing access to Google Mobile Services and the myriad of applications available via the Android market. Xperia™ smartphones add best in class entertainment on top of smartphone fundamentals such as apps, maps, email and fast uncompromised access to the Web with Adobe® Flash® Player to create the most entertaining smartphone experience.

Sigh, I guess it was too much to hope that they would've kept the Mini Pro size and just increased the screen res.

I already thought that a 3" screen was too big to go for the next Mini Pro update... 3.7"??? I might as well get an iPhone...

Maybe two separate topics for neo and pro would be a good idea?

@jplacson
Mini and mini pro successor will be announced next time.

just a though, why was it not called the 'xperia neo pro'? because 'xperia pro' (to people who don't know this means a keyboard) sounds like it is the best xperia model on the market. so is this really want SE want? i mean taking the spotlight away from the arc?

I fell in love with the Xperia pro! That phone rocks! I'm looking forward to any news about that phone. Good SE!
The best mobile phone brand died with Sony Ericsson's death. Shame on you Sony for killing it! And, of course, for ruining the Xperia brand...

The silver colored Pro is the one I want, if I decided to stay with SE.
A bigger screen than the the X10 Mini is just a positive thing as the 2.55" are way too small for my liking (small is good in the pocket but using it as a PDA was a pain).

Don not care much about the camera.

Was just checking them out at SE site but found nothing of which Android version it coming with, may one hope for 2.3 like the "Arc"?

Coming at end of Q2 which might mean sometimes between early May or late June.

Hopes the committee that selected the pre-installed software in the X10 Mini, have been banned from dealing with pre-installed software in the Xperia Pro. They did a lousy job with X10 Mini.
