Droidcon took place these days in Berlin, Germany. Sony was there to showcase its latest products and one of them is Xperia Sola, the handset with a magic touch display announced less than 48 hours ago.
Xperia Sola is a dual-core-device that comes with a 3.7 inch touchscreen and a new innovative feature display called by Sony the “floating touch”-technology, which is supposed to make your browsing experience easier and much more comfortable.
Through this new technology a user is able to highlight web links by simply hovering (not swiping) his finger over the screen, while if he wants to select a link the user then simply touches it. Floating touch is said to allow the user to use the touchscreen even with a pair of gloves on, which could be very handy during winter time. although it works only in a browser on Gingerbread this feature will be fully functional once the device receives the upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
According to a leaked document earlier this year from Sony India, Xperia Sola (Pepper) will be available starting with the second quarter of 2012 for around €310.
