And here’s a pair of new Sony Xperia concept phones, created by Suman Chatterjee: the Sony Xperia Pro 2013, a handset inspired by the Sony Ericsson Xperia Pro and the Mini Pro and the Sony Xperia W. In spite of the name, the Xperia W is not a Walkman phone, but rather a full fledged smartphone with Android Key Lime Pie and maybe a quad core or 8 core CPU.

Back to the Sony Xperia Pro, this sliding QWERTY phone seems to have a comfy keyboard, with 4 rows and very nice spacing. The device is rather compact and chubby, with a not so long format, being wider rather than longer. I can see the resemblance with the Xperia Mini Pro and I can imagine this as some sort of midrange device, maybe even with a quad core chipset inside, but not the good stuff, maybe a Mediatek or something.

Sony Xperia W seems like your run of the mill handset from nowadays, with a 5 inch display, 13 MP camera and quad core CPU. The interesting bit is that it brings a camera key on Android, something you don’t see every day. The design is pretty simple and minimalistic, without any crazy bezels, transparent areas or edge to edge action. Which of these models do you prefer?

    i see resemblance to the links,but i have already mentioned that the xperia pro is inspired from the 2011 xperia mini pro (since i have one) ,so am sorry to say that i did not take the keypad from there..moreover on checking out the link i was a bit amazed to see an iphone with an xperia keyboad..that was crazy.. similarly the xperia w is also an original piece… and yes i agree with the fact that there are similarties, both being an xperia device

    I dont like saying things repeatedly..still if you are haapy thinking that the part of the concept is from your design, i dont mind it.. i know one fact very well that the truth always prevails..

    Dear Suman, I am using Mini Pro SK17i sliding. I like sliders. Your model is also nice. But I am looking for a new one, but it is not clear which is the latest slider from Sony (2013-2014). Pls advice. Thank you!!!
