Sony Xperia Launches Interactive Projector & Open-Earbud Concept

At the Mobile World Congress 2017, Sony Xperia launched its new touch interactive projector and unveiled a new, open ear style earbud concept.

The projector that runs on Android can convert any flat surface into a touchscreen. Unlike most headphones that try to cut out the sound, the open style concept earbuds are wireless earbuds that allow surrounding sounds.

The Xperia touch interactive Android projector can project a 23 inch high definition image onto a flat surface with a multi-touch feature. Making use of the SXRD projection display technology for quick response, it can capture motion at the rate of 60 fps using the 13 megapixel Exmor RS camera. The device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and comes with a 3GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. It connects to devices using WiFi (SISO): 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth, USB type-C, NFC and HDMI Type-D.

Apps can be downloaded off Google Play Store. It supports Skype and Play Station 4. It is designed keeping in mind its utility for everyone –a child using it on a table as a drawing board, a mother looks through recipes on the table top or a Skype call projected on a wall.

All these features, packed into this device come at a price of EUR 1,499 (Approximately Rs. 1,06,000) and will be available in the European market and on the Xperia Store online soon.

The Sony Xperia Ear Open-style concept are smart wireless headphones. What’s unique about them is that they allow audio inputs from the surroundings along with basic functions like listening to music. They also come with a digital assistant to take and receive instructions through voice recognition. The key idea behind using the device is that the user doesn’t need to take them off ever. A rough design has been developed by Sony’s Future Lab Program incubator. The concept is still in the prototype phase and no more details about its launch date, availability or price have been revealed yet.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
