For some strange reason, I’m suddenly interested in the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something about the device makes me feel different about it today than I felt yesterday. Sony Ericsson didn’t increase the size and it’s not going to get Froyo for the foreseeable forever, so why would I care all of a sudden?

Oh yeah, they’ve got tennis star Maria Sharapova distracting me. Well played, SE.

Sharapova joined her sponsors at Sony Ericsson and participated in an unboxing video of the Mini Pro, Sony’s bite-size XPERIA. She takes a look at the new device, which just went on sale O2 for a cost of £49 – £199 depending on tariff. The Mini Pro sports a 5 MP camera with auto-focus, photo/video light; up to 16GB microSD, slide-out QWERTY keyboard; and 600 MHz processor.

Nothing mind-blowing, but strangely intriguing.
