After launching Xperia Play and Xperia Arc recently in India, Sony Ericsson is all set to introduce its latest handset, the Xperia Pro, in the country.
The Android smartphone aimed at heavy texting users and social media enthusiasts. Sony Ericsson has started taking pre booking orders from users in the United Kingdom from today, which is an indication that the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro might be announced in India soon after the launch in UK.
Sony Ericsson had launched the Xperia play and the Xperia Arc in UK first before their India debut, and we hope that the company will follow the pattern this time also. If all things work well, then we might see the Xperia Pro as soon as the beginning of the next month.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro is a full Qwerty keypad based Android smartphone with 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon system on chip or Soc as found on the Xperia Play and the Arc. The display of the Xperia Pro is a slightly smaller at 3.7 inches LED back-lit capacitive touchscreen LCD. An 8 megapixel camera capable of recording 720p high definition videos has been included in this and it also has a 32 GB expandable memory slot.
The official price of the SIM free or the contract free version, which can be used with any service provider, has been kept as 349.99 Euros that translates to Rs 26,000.
But by the time it reaches Indian shores, it should be expected with a price tag of almost Rs 28,000 to 30,000 after taxes and duties.
