Sony Xperia Sola NFC enabled handset

Sony Xperia Sola NFC enabled handset

Sony ‘s fourth NFC enabled Xperia handset.
The Xperia Sola features “floating touch” technology. Floating touch technology means; you browse the web without actually touching the screen, you hover your finger above the screen, like a moving cursor. Once positioned over the intended link, the link becomes highlighted and all you have to do is tap, to open the link.

Sony ‘s Xperia sola is NFC enabled and comes with two Xperia SmartTags in the box. The SmartTags will be handily configured for the living room and bedroom, but can be (re)programmed to use up to 10 different commands.
“Just tap Xperia sola with one of the included NFC SmartTags and it will instantly launch apps and change all the settings you like to the situation you want.
Turn on Wi-Fi and turn up the ring volume at home. Set your alarm and turn off GPS at night. All with one easy touch. With ready-to-go profiles for home, office, car and bedroom, and the choice to set the options you want with LiveWare manager, it’s so easy to use SmartTags wherever you are.”
