Rogers launched the Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro yesterday amid no rah! rah! sis-boom-ba! Understandably, the BlackBerry launches of late are stealing this set's thunder, but none of that ultimately takes away from the fact that the Mini is a pretty capable handset. As a refresher, under the hood we find a five megapixel cam, triple-band HSPA, quad-band GSM, Android Gingerbread 2.3, and a nice -- if not a bit cramped -- QWERTY keyboard. Pricing is set at $49 on a three-year contract and $274 if you want to purchase the phone outright. With sister company Fido's launch of the Xperia Pro yesterday, it seems Sony Ericsson's warming up to a busy fall north of the border.
