We’ve been fondling the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro, fresh from Sony Ericsson’s press conference and it’s a beauty, just like the original Vivaz. That’s not to say we didn’t spot a few immediate flaws though. Read on, scope our hands-on photos and see what we thought of our first, tentative feel of the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro.

The Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro is pretty, just like the original. The addition of a QWERTY keyboard adds a respectable 2mm to its overall frame, it’s also pretty comfy for typing. That said, the software underneath was still a little laggy. We’re tempted to blame that on Symbian lurking inside, however, and we’re sure Sony will have ironed out the performance issues by the time final software is loaded onboard.

More worrying is that Sony Ericsson has downgraded the camera inside the Vivaz Pro. Where the original Vivaz packed in an 8 megapixel sensor, the new Vivaz Pro has 5 megapixels to its name. Interestingly, however, the Vivaz Pro still handles HD video with aplomb, recording in 720p.

Pretty, yes. Handy, definitely. The Vivaz Pro doesn’t seem revolutionary, however. Now, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro on the other hand, they’re very special. Check out our hands-on photos of the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro above.
