The Sony Ericsson txt pro combines a three-inch touch screen with a 3.2 megapixel camera and full slide-out QWERTY keyboard. Its integrated friends’ application enables users to add their five best friends to see at a glance updates from their Facebook and Twitter feeds.

The Sony Ericsson Mix Walkman and the Sony Ericsson txt pro will be available globally from Q3.
