X10 mini, mini pro in color

Sony Ericsson has announced earlier this month that the X10 Mini, and the X10 Mini Pro will soon be available in new colors.  The Mini, (right) will be available with a gold shell, while the Mini Pro (left) will feature a pink sliding case.  I'll tell anyone within earshot that I'm not 100 percent sure I like the trend to giant phones, and these sure do look nice.  Too bad they only updated the case colors -- both the Mini and Mini Pro still run Android 1.6.

Verizon is offering the Pixel 4a for just $10/mo on new Unlimited lines

For what it's worth, the new colors should be available next month, and an update to Android 2.1 sometime before hell freezes over in Q4 of this year.  SE -- we love your phones.  They feel great, and have excellent call quality.  Please realize that we Android fans need the OS updates more than we need food, and make phones that look this hot run a current version of the software!
