The Perfect Business Phone: Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Pro

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Pro is the partner to the Xperia Neo, sharing the same state-of-the-art suite of features and applications, and powered by the 1GHz SnapDragon processor which hurtles through browsing, messaging or image-viewing tasks with the greatest of ease. Like its perfectly-formed sibling, it’s also an aesthetic delight with its smooth curves and elegant proportions. But where the Experia Pro differs is in having an optimized slide-out keyboard with integrated smart functions, specifically aimed at enabling super-fast messaging. The Xperia Pro introduces Sony Ericsson’s innovative new Type & Send functionality, which frees users from having to keep open a specific app dedicated to each type of message. The Smart Keyboard automatically triggers predictive messaging protocols the moment the user slides it out for use.

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro aims to be the perfect business phone for Android users. Built on the latest 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, its suite of professional functions includes secure syncing of email, calendar and contacts, while Office Suite Pro enables seamless viewing and editing of Word, Excel and PowerPoint files while on the go.

But of course the Xperia Pro offers dazzling features and performance for home and leisure too. Its imaging capabilities give it a market-leading edge, thanks to its 8.1MP autofocus camera with Sony’s Exmor R CMOS sensor which facilitates stunning photos even in low light. Add Flash, face detection and image stabilization, and you have optical performance which many dedicated digital cameras would struggle to match. The Pro shoots HD video too, with low light and indoor performance enhanced by a built-in video light. For video calls and self-portraits, there’s a front-facing 2MP camera.

Image and video playback is a joy on the Pro’s 3.7 in  BRAVIA TFT touchscreen, a mobile marvel with its dazzling 854x480pixel display, while an HDMI output offers playback on HD TVs. Connectivity is via WiFi, 3G and HSDPA/HSUPA, as well as Bluetooth and microUSB. This has to be a contender for Best Android Phone of 2011. To find your ideal smartphone, you can be sure that Expansys smartphones will help you do just that.
