It was March of 2012 when the Sony Xperia Sola was announced to the public. It got us all excited because this Sony only branded handset features a new technology that you will not find on other smartphones out there. You will also not find this specific feature on other Xperia handsets. In this article, we will talk about the things that the Sony Xperia Sola can give you and what other things you can expect from this handset. Read on!

Let us start with the phone's unique feature. I am talking about Sony's latest technology the Floating Touch. So what is so special about this feature? For one, this specific feature will allow you to navigate the handset (specifically the browsing part) without having to touch the screen. Hence the name, the floating touch. All you have to do is to hover your finger over the phone's screen and it will do as you please. For example, if you want to view a certain link on the phone's browser hover on it and it will open. Unfortunately, as mentioned earlier this feature is limited for now. However, Sony promises to expand this feature to other parts or portion of the handset's display screen and menu.

This phone is packed with an impressive screen size. At 3.7″ you will be able to do a lot of things and see things way better courtesy of its Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine. The phone's screen resolution is at 480 x 854 pixels (at 265ppi pixel density). You will also enjoy the phone's LED backlit LCD capacitive touch screen panel.

You want more? Well, this handset is packed with a powerful dual-core processor and it clocks at an amazing speed rate of 1GHz. You will also get a 5MP front-facing shutter on this handset. Enjoy vivid and clear camera resolution at 2592 x 1944 pixels on this handset. You can also record videos at 720 pixels and at 30 frames per second. You will also enjoy continuous auto-focus and video light on this handset. Sounds fun? Yes it is!

The good news is it doesn't end there. This handset is compact and light with its dimensions at 116 x 59 x 9.9 mm and it weighs in at 107 grams only. Bringing this handset with you will never be problem. Pocketing it is also not a problem. It can fit even your slimmest and tightest pair of jeans.

As you can see, there is more to this handset than meets the eye. It features a unique technology and it is quite powerful for its petite size. This is the Sony Xperia Sola and these are the things that it can give you.
