Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Review

 

"With it's slideout QWERTY keyboard and many of the features we loved from the Arc, could this be Android's Blackberry rival?"

First impressions of the Pro are very promising, we’re glad Sony Ericsson has retain so many of the features we loved from the Arc, could this be the full QWERTY Android phones we’ve been looking for since the HTC Desire Z? The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro...

REVIEW: Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Android Smartphone

 

Sony Ericsson is a big company, to be sure, but it’s still not among the top-tier when it comes to Android smartphones. That upper level is probably still held by HTC and Samsung, possibly with an honorable mention to Motorola. The Xperia pro continues...

A little while ago Matt did an unboxing video of a handset that I personally had my eye on because my partner and sister are looking for a decent phone with a physical QWERTY keyboard, so when I got the e-mail from Matt asking me to review...

I believe that the type of people who would buy this type of phone would be people buying it as a gift for a child if the price was right, and younger people themselves who maybe can’t afford an iPhone or something similar, other than that I can’t...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro

 

We've finally got our hands on the elusive Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro, which was originally tipped to hit Blighty back in June this year. Still, as they say, better late than never. With its large 3.7-inch screen and slide-out QWERTY keypad, could this...

Besides HTC's aged Desire Z, the Android Market has been calling out for a decent smartphone with a slide-out QWERTY keypad. Thankfully, the Xperia Pro fills that much-needed pleasure of using. The phone, like its siblings, also boasts one of the best...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro review: First Look

 

An Android 2.3 smartphone with a physical keyboard and proper video-out support - could the Xperia Pro be the business smartphone of 2011?

A hardware keyboard and video-out capabilities that work with any app make the Xperia Pro one of the smartphones to look forward to in 2011.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro review

 

Android-powered handsets sporting hardware QWERTY keyboards are a bit of underrated niche. Whilst there's many form factors out there, just a handful of those were actually worthwhile. Sony Ericsson's Xperia Mini Pro, although quite popular, never...

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro is a bit of an underrated handset. It seems to be hidden in the shadow of its smaller sibling, the Xperia mini Pro, on which the main marketing effort from Sony Ericsson itself and UK operators is focused. Nonetheless, it...

Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro Android Smartphone Review

 

With Sony Ericsson as a company undergoing a slight change, one would expect their devices to do so as well. Sadly that's not the case, however, there never really was a general cause of concern for users to take up issue with too many of SE's devices...

With a Price tag of Rs. 23,990 (MRP) on the Xperia Pro, it makes for a great feature rich handset. The tiny glitch with the sliver model’s keypad and backlighting can easily be overlooked when compared to the slew of features and the above average...
