Sony Ericsson just unveiled their Vivaz phone a few weeks ago, and already the device's successor (or partner, at least) is being released at Mobile World Congress. The Vivaz pro follows the X10 mini and X10 mini pro in being a standard upgrade to an existing handset, with the main addition to the Vivaz pro being a real QWERTY keypad. The standard Vivaz relies on a "soft" on-screen keyboard, so this one aims at smartphone users who prefer the hard keys instead.

Of course, the full touch panel is still here, so you're really getting the best of both worlds. The phone is just marginally thicker than the original Vivaz, but the 3.2" wide touchscreen will help you forget all about it when playing back HD video footage. There's also integrated Wi-Fi, HSPA 3G and availability in black or white colors.



Other specs include a 5.1MP camera, Bluetooth, a multi-media player, speakerphone, video calling, 3D gaming support, a-GPS, Google Maps, turn-by-turn navigation, a 3.5mm audio jack, DLNA certification, 8GB microSD card and a 640 x 360 resolution display. There's no word yet on pricing nor availability, but we guess it will ship first in Europe.

This seems to be a very nice unit. Of course so do most of the others. This market is getting to be Uber flooded more than anything, which is fine with me.

Yeah that's why in another statement I made I brought up the Env2 &3 line of phones they are physically very close to each other.
