Xperia MT27i Sola visits Droidcon Berlin



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.
