Today Sony officially unveiled its latest Android smartphone, the Xperia Sola. With the recent debut of a variety of new Xperia devices, what makes this phone worthy of interest? A new technology called “floating touch”, for one. This unique ability allows you to hover your finger over the screen as if moving a cursor, without actually touching the device itself. Think of it as a Microsoft Kinect sensor for your smartphone, at least sort of.

Outside of the Floating Touch technology, the Xperia Sola also features NFC technology and its new Smart Tags system, a 3.7-inch display, a 1GHZ dual-core processor, Android 2.3, a 5MP HD camera, and 3D surround sound audio technology.

Sony has yet to provide a specific release date or pricing point. For US consumers, though, it is still not certain whether or not it is even coming to the states, although the device is technically compatible with AT&T’s 3G network.

    Hiya..the floating touch technology is really interesting. Camera quality is outstanding. Another thing i loved is that you can turn the wi-fi on see the video captured on any screen. Its look and feel is also awesome. Good launch  by Sony.

    Floating touch technology is quite useful in situations where event are accidentally triggered, when user wants to select another activity and another one is selected and triggered. This brings in the advantage of floating touch, the selection of location is sensed without touching the screen due to change in the capacitance of the electrodes used, to locate the position of the finger and event is triggered when the finger actually touches the screen.
