The Sony Ericsson Txt Pro, which was unveiled in June, is now available in India through online stores for Rs 7,500. The phone is ideal for those who are busy chatting and messaging all the time, thanks to its slider Qwerty keypad.
The phone comes with 3 inch capacitive touchscreen (400 x 240 pixels), WiFi, Bluetooth with A2DP and 3.5mm audio jack. It weighs just 100 grams and has an internal memory of 100 MB. It has a 3.2 megapixel camera using which one can also record videos. The 1000 mAh battery gives 400 hours standby time and about 5 hours talk time. However, the Sony Ericsson Txt Pro is not 3G enabled.
The Sony Ericsson Txt Pro has a social soul — it was announced by Sony Ericsson first on the Facebook page where it has 5 million fans. The only trouble is, it is a touchscreen phone, but is still a feature phone and users do have the tendency to compare such phones with low cost Android handsets.
Overall, the design is sleek and stylish, and has an accelerometer as well to sense the rotation of the phone. However, few users have complained that it does not respond very smoothly to touch gestures and the root of the problem probably resides in the processor of the phone.
