The second smallest big surprise at Sony Ericsson's press conference tonight at the Opium Mar bar on the eve of Mobile World Congress has the same size as the Xperia X10 mini -- and it brings along a four-row keyboard to boot. Adding just 2 mm thickness, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro (yeah, now Android's getting into the "Pro" line) features the exact same specs as its little bother, only it adds a horizontal sliding keyboard into the mix.
