Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro on pre-order

Remember the Xperia Pro? We can't really blame you if you don't. After all, it was launched in February and since then, we've heard little else about it. News has just emerged about it though, with Sony Ericsson now taking orders.

We have no idea why there has been such a delay with the Xperia Pro. Maybe Sony Ericsson just wanted to use all its marketing force on the Xperia Play? No matter, it looks like it is almost here, although there are still no contract deals announced from the networks. They should be along fairly soon though, if that's your preferential route. However, if you want to go SIM-free, Unwired View says you can pre-order one from the Sony Ericsson store now for £349.99. When will you get it? 'June' is as accurate as it gets.

If you genuinely can't recall the handset, let us remind you. The Xperia Pro offers Android Gingerbread (2.3) for the operating system plus a Reality display with Mobile Bravia Engine for 'super-sharp' imagery and Sony's award-winning Exmor R mobile sensor for capturing high quality, bright pictures and HD videos, even in low light. Pictures and videos (via the 8.1-megapixel camera) can also be shared on an HDTV in your living room via the built in HDMI-connector. There's also a 1GHz Qualcomm processor to keep things ticking over.

Designed as much for business as pleasure, the Pro has an ergonomically-designed slide-out keyboard, Type & Send functionality (which eliminates the need to open a dedicated app for each type of message) and Smart Keyboard, which triggers predictive messaging actions automatically when you slide out the keyboard. It also easily syncs your email, calendar and contacts in a secure way and comes pre-loaded with Office Suite Pro, so you can view and edit office documents directly on the phone.

When we hear about the network deals, you'll be the first to know. But if you want SIM-free, you know where to go right now.
