The Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini manages to pack a whole host of features into, as the name suggests, a very small handset. Despite the pocket friendly dimensions, it still packs technology to rival several larger Smartphones.

The XPERIA X10 Mini relies on touch screen navigation of the Android OS user interface. The TFT capacitive touch screen measures 2.55 inches, and thanks to the ability to display up to 16M colours within a pixel setup of 240x320 pixels, the display quality is very high. The screen is made out of scratch resistant materials, protecting it from everyday wear and tear, and features an auto-rotate function courtesy of an inbuilt accelerometer sensor.

The internal phonebook in the XPERIA X10 Mini is capable of storing a large number of contacts, and includes the popular and useful photocall feature. Internal storage for data such as media files is in the shape of 128 MB. A micro SD slot is also included for this purpose, with a pre-installed 2GB memory card. This can be upgraded, however, to a card of up to 16 GB for more storage.

The everyday functionality of this handset is certainly impressive, thanks to the long list of features. A versatile media player accommodates most of the major video and music file formats. A stereo FM radio player and a selection of pre-installed games are provided to keep users entertained for hours on end. Several popular websites can be directly accessed thanks to dedicated applications. These include Google and YouTube.

Obviously it will come as no surprise that the XPERIA X10 Mini measures just 83x50x16mm and only weighs 88 grams. The pocket friendly dimensions and light weight make it a comfortable phone to hold and use when out and about. The handset is finished in a sophisticated black colour scheme, with just 3 silver buttons beneath the touch screen.

The built in digital camera has 5 mega pixels, so the quality of the still images it takes are very high. The pixel resolution this camera operates at is 2560x1920, so the detail is excellent. Several image enhancing features are included in the camera's software package, such as autofocus and LED flash. By utilising these, users can take quality photos with the minimum of fuss. The camera also has the ability to shoot video in VGA quality at a frame rate of 30 fps as an alternative method of image capture.

Alert types are vibration and ringing, with the option to assign MP3 music files as ringtones, allowing users to customise their phone so they can hear the track of their choosing any time the phone rings. A speakerphone is included for hands free communication, as is a 3.5mm audio jack.

To connect to the internet in areas covered by 3G, a HSDPA connection is utilised (alongside HSUPA). Where available, Wi-Fi kicks in to take advantage of the signals provided by wireless internet routers, providing a faster and therefore enhanced web browsing experience.

So whether you are looking for a web browser, media player or digital camera, the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X10 Mini has to be a serious consideration, especially given its compact size.
