Remember the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini pro Mk.II, details of which turned up at the end of last year, and was then subsequently pictured in the new year?

Of course you do, although without word on the diminutive handset for almost three months you'll be forgiven if it had slipped off of your radar.

But it's cropped up once again, this time in some mini shots, with suggestions of an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) inclusion being ramped up as well.

The X10 mini pro sequel has a QWERTY slider keyboard on board as well as a camera with LED flash. And, is that a front facing camera we spy with our little eye? 

The handset is said to be packing an 800MHz - 1GHz processor (as opposed to the 600MHz MSM7227 one of the original X10 mini), with the Adreno 205 being suggested. 

There's no details yet as to when this little Gingerbread handset will land but, as always, we'll keep you posted.
