Xperia Pro Hands-on [MWC]

The Xperia Pro is your basic horizontal slider - but it's nice to see Sony Ericsson fill out the form factors that people are looking for. The keyboard feels, well, professional in ways that the Timescape skin isn't just yet. That is to say that we saw a few software crashes will putting the phone through it's very quick paces. Since this is the one Xperia phone that Sony Ericsson isn't trying to launch in March, we'll forgive the bugs.

It's also sporting the Arc's "reality display," which means that it's 854x480 pixels packed into 3.7 inches with the Bravia Engine behind it. DLNA, HDMI, an 8GB microSD card, and a 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8255 also fill out this 140g, 120x57x13.5mm package. Of course, it's sporting Android Gingerbread 2.3, which SE claims you'll be able to enjoy for 7 hours of usage. It's launching with two HSPA versions (North America and Europe) in Black, Silver, or Red.
