Sony Mobile Communications has announced another addition to its Xperia smartphone lineup in the form of Xperia sola. Running on Android 2.3 with promised upgrade to Android 4.0, Xperia sola boasts of a 3.7″ inch Reality display, 1 GHz dual core processor and a 5 megapixel camera. Just like the Xperia S, sola is Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled and comes with two SmartTags. These SmartTags allows users to change the settings of their phone simply by touching.
Sony Sola will be available in black, white and red colurs and set to arrive in the global markets next quarter. Sony Xperia sola will be the first phone to debut with floating touch technology. The company has introduced a new technology called Floating Touch navigation that lets users navigate the web by hovering their finger above the screen so it acts like a moving curser, without actually having to touch the screen. Once the desired link is found it can be highlighted and a simple tap will load the page.
