A Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro has just rocked up at the door to greet us with its slide out QWERTY keyboard and HD video recording skills. We’re off to put it through the grinder, but in the meantime, snack on all the photos of this Symbian phone right here, and tell us what you want to know for our full review, coming soon!
We first clapped eyes on the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro back in February at Mobile World Congress, but it’s only slipped out on sale this week in the UK. It’s near identical to the original Vivaz, sharing the same 3.2 inch touchscreen, Symbian S60 operating system, and 5.1 megapixel camera, capable of recording 720p HD video.
The only difference is of course the slide out QWERTY keyboard on the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro, and we’re quite pleased with it from our first play. The buttons feel a tad cheap and rubbery, but they’re quite easy to get a good WPM pace going on. Of course, we’re already running up against what we think’s going to be the sticking point: Symbian. On the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro, it’s still as creaky and unpleasant as ever. We’ve seen some screen blackouts already that you could make a cup of tea during.
But never mind our concerns – what are yours? If you’ve been keeping an eye on the Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro for a while, what do you want to know most? Is it the camera quality? App support? Build quality of the slide mechanism?
