Officially unveiled back in March, the Sony Xperia Sola should be released in Europe (and possibly also in North America) before the end of June. Until then, ePrice Taiwan reports that the handset is already available in Hong Kong, where it costs 2,998 HKD (about $390 or €290). Most likely, the smartphone will have a similar price across Europe.
The Sola is Sony’s first device to feature “floating touch navigation”, allowing users to browse the web by hovering their finger above the 3.7 inch FWVGA display. Other features include: Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich), NFC, HSPA, Wi-Fi, 5MP rear camera with 720p video recording, 512MB of RAM, 1GHz dual-core processor, 8MP of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
