If you want stock like camera i suppose ArcMini would be a better choice, it's still based on MiniCM7/GB2.3.7, but with Sony Ercsson apps.

Thank you for those quick replies. After posting this question i've read some other posts. And I came across a post where its mentioned that Unlocking bootloader may Hard brick the phone. ( That'd be murder in my words.)
That post was for x10mini pro. Is it applicable for x10 mini too?

Yes, although it's very rare to actually hard-brick it.
If your phone is built before 11w29 (take off the back-cover and read the sticker), actually hard-bricking it is unlikely.
The only thing you have to worry about then is the simlock-certificate, if S1Tool says it's unrecognised it's going to be difficult, if it's SEMC simlock certificate, you should be ok.

It says 11W06 on the sticker of my cell phone. Does that mean there are no chances of bricking?

You can still brick it, but in the vast majority of cases, restoring to stock rom and relocking the bootloader will get you going again, which are things you can do yourself

I can use SIM provided by any network. My phone doesn't have any restriction. So that should prevent certificate issue right?

Can't stop loving X10mini

Yes, you should be ok. just make sure you check if you still have network-access after unlocking the bootloader, by booting up before doing anything else. If you get a signal, you can do whatever you please
