Hands-on video – Sony Ericsson Vivaz Pro

The Vivaz barely had time to show off it’s new curves, or ‘human curvature’ as the design philosphy is otherwise known, when its QWERTY keyboard-toting twin comes along to grab a piece of the spotlight. And we wasted no time in getting a quick hands-on video with it.

With minor differences between them it’s pretty tough to work out what they are based on face value alone. While it’s easy to argue they’re essentially the same handset, with the obvious difference being the keyboard, the main differences are that the Vivaz sports an 8.1MP camera whereas the Vivaz Pro packs in 5.1MPs  and therefore a smaller sensor to make way for it’s slide out keyboard.

The Vivaz Pro is also 2mm thicker. The best part however, is they both pack 720p HD video mode, putting it up against the likes of Samsungs i8910 HD.

See it in action for yourself in our hands-on video. Want to know more about both handsets? It’d be a good idea to check out our Vivaz and Vivaz Pro hands-on photos too. Make sure you tell us what you think below – does a keyboard make the Vivaz Pro more appealing?
