Xperia Mini Pro lands in Singapore; Xperia Pro still delayed

The successor to my current phone (X10 Mini Pro), has arrived in Singapore.

Features include
  1. a bigger screen (from 2.5-inch to 3-inch)
  2. faster processor (from 600MHz to 1Ghz); this also means Adobe Flash is supported
  3. OS upgrade (from Android 2.1 to 2.3)
  4. front-facing camera (Skype just announced expanded video-calling capability for its Android app)
  5. hardware QWERTY keyboard has more keys, including 4-way arrow keys and shortcut keys
Looks tempting, but I don't think I will get this phone, as it does not have the backlit CMOS sensor (a.k.a. Exmor-R) in its camera. The long delayed Xperia Pro has that feature, but is also bulkier.
