Xperia mini pro | Sony Ericsson
Sony has refuted an earlier statement in which a spokesperson claimed the Xperia Arc S and Mini Pro would not get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, saying it was still considering OS updates.
In introducing Ice Cream Sandwich, Google's version 4.0 of Android, Matias Duarte said that it will be the one mobile OS for devices of every size and form factor — and this week Sony's living up to that promise by rolling out the ICS upgrade for the 3-inch Xperia Mini Pro.
Sony Mobile has updated the Ice Cream Sandwich update release schedule for its 2011 Xperia phones, moving the start back to mid-April.
Some software glitches aside, the Xperia Mini Pro provides incredible bang for your smartphone buck. Far from the typical afterthought appendage, its keyboard offers stellar tactile feedback and a frustration-free layout.
What I find aggravating is the labeling of this as a 5-megapixel sensor — neither the Mini Pro’s hardware capabilities nor its post-processing software justifies that title. In terms of usable imagery, you’re looking at something closer to 2 megapixels.
