A quick Mobo-search for the Sony Ericsson Xperia pro shows we haven’t written much about the handset since we first met at Mobile World Congress.
We weren’t entirely sure when to expect the QWERTY slider, given the delays and shortages affecting the Sony Ericsson Xperias Play and Arc, however SE now confirms that the Xperia pro will land this month.
Sony Ericsson doesn’t elaborate on “Available JUNE”, but it does reveal the Xperia pro’s SIM free price as £349.99 on its online store.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia pro will inevitably step on the toes of the similarly-specced HTC Desire Z. They both have 3.7in displays, however the pro boasts a 1GHz processor and 8.1MP camera (compared to the HTC Desire Z’s 800MHz and 5MP).
Is there much of a market for QWERTY sliders in this age of large displays? The paltry range suggests not.
