New Sony mobile phone promises touch-free navigation

Sony Mobile Communications has announced a new Android-powered smartphone. The Sony Xperia sola has a 1GHz dual-core processor, a 3.7-inch display and a 5 megapixel camera. Notable features include NFC connectivity and what the company is calling ‘floating touch’ navigation.

Floating touch lets consumers navigate the web by moving their finger above the screen. Links are highlighted when selected; the user can then tap the screen to visit their chosen page.

NFC connectivity includes the use of Sony ‘SmartTags’, which can be set up to launch a pre-configured profile. Each tag can be personalised with up to 10 commands, such as turning on WiFi and then opening a specific web page. Two tags are included in the box.

Calum MacDougall, Head of Xperia Marketing for Sony Mobile Communications, said “Xperia sola comes with the power of Sony and a sense of magic with floating touch, giving consumers a fun new way to browse the web and latest technology to show off. With Xperia SmartTags out of the box and access to the latest content through Sony Entertainment Network, Xperia sola is perfect for consumers looking for ease of use and the best in entertainment in a smart and innovative smartphone.”

The Xperia sola is expected to become available in Q2 2012.
