There’s been quite a few price drops on Sony Ericsson handsets lately and here’s another one that’s just come through. While this handset isn’t new, it is refurbished and sold by a trustable UK online retailer. Mobiles.co.uk state that the refurbished handsets are units that have been returned under their 7 day returns policy and have been fully tested and inspected and also come with a full 12 month warranty.
Mobiles are selling refurbished Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini’s for £49.90 on O2, Vodafone and Orange. A £10 top up is required however, taking the overall price for £59.90 with free delivery. Which ever network you choose though, the phone will be unlocked.
The Xperia X10 Mini still retails for other £100 new at other retailers and even with a smaller screen size than the Xperia X8, which we’ve recently seen drop in price, the X10 Mini does have a substantially better camera. The X10 Mini is equipped with a 5 megapixel camera and has flash.
This is last years X10 Mini model, so will not be updated past Android 2.1 which, should be on the phone already. The X10 Mini has removable back covers but, Mobiles say that refurbished handsets might not come with all the accessories, in this case the other replacement back covers. Replacement backs are available on eBay though so you can pick the color of your choice. Another thing to note about this handset, is unlike the other Xperia handsets and the majority of other phones on the market, the X10 Mini does not have a removable battery.
