Xperia Pro is available to pre-order from today

Yearning for a smartphone with good old-fashioned honest-to-goodness buttons? Sony Ericsson feels your need

By now we're used to manufacturers slapping a QWERTY keyboard on a phone and calling it a 'pro'. Sony Ericsson continued the tradition with the Xperia Pro at Mobile World Congress, and it's now making our suited brethren sweat further by announcing pre-ordering. The 1GHz dual core Gingerbread 2.3-powered smartphone is available to pre-order directly from Sony Ericsson for £350 of your hard-earned cash, so hit up the store and press the green button before common sense catches up with your wallet. It’s just a matter of time before your shiny new 8MP device arrives in the post.
