Sony Ericsson Txt Pro Unboxing and Review
The Sony Ericsson Txt Pro is a budget yet spec’d out phone, with a proprietary OS on the device the Txt Pro offers Xperia like UI , without the frills of an Android Interface.
Surprising well built for its price, with a spring loaded robust slide mechanism, the device seems up to mark with any premium slider phones back in the day. the overall construction is also quite stable and the device does not rattle at all despite a 2 part design. The soft touch plastic is a great addition to the handleability of the device,and its extremely comfortable in the hand. The Keyboard is a chiclet style keyboard and has wonderfully tactile buttons.
The device has interesting specs

Although priced at Rs. 7,500, the phone does not offer too many features. One can get decent Android phones for around that price. So why would anybody consider this phone? Well for starters overly-smart operating systems (read android) require constant attention and care, consume a lot of battery and become the centre of your life. Some people still like to buy phones for their basic abilities.
The txt pro offers basics with a little bit of add ons , you do get all your social networks included – Facebook, Orkut, twitter and Picasa apps come preloaded. Allowing you to fully utilize the qwerty keyboard for chatting messaging and emailing. The device also features WiFi connectivity , but unfortunately has no 3G.
The touchscreen is a capacitive screen and is extremely responsive, the UI is easy on the eyes and breeze to use. The camera is a simple 3.2 MP fixed focus camera and does not deliver great pictures.
Our recommendation is that for this price be a little thrill seeking and make the switch to Android, and get a different device, Optimus One, Galaxy Pop, Galaxy 551, Mini, or even the Dell XCD 35. The phones will actually make you happy.
This phone (Txt Pro) is extremely loud and an excellent phone, but why buy it when you can get much more.
