Seit wie vielen Monaten geistert das MT27i mit dem Codenamen Pepper durch das Netz? Ewig oder? Das ist vorbei, denn soeben hat Sony dieses Schmuckstück hochoffiziell vorgestellt. Es nennt sich ab sofort „sola“ und ist das Erste mit Xperia Smart Tag Unterstützung (wir berichteten) und einem wirklich markanten Äußeren. Endlich weg vom Einheitsbrei. Hier haben wir für euch mal alle wichtigen Infos, technischen Daten, Fotos und Hands-On Videos gesammelt.

Rein optisch ist das sola den Sony Mannen wirklich gelungen. Kantig, Eckig und so auch in der Masse absolut unverkennbar. Gefällt mir. Von den technischen Daten kann man zwar nicht mit den aktuellen Tegra 3 Supersportlern mithalten, aber das Paket wirkt trotzdem komplett. Hier kommt auch die neue Floating Touch Technologie zum Einsatz, mit der die Bedienung erheblich leichter vonstatten gehen soll. Dabei muss man beim scrollen z.B. auf dem Homescreen oder Browser nicht mehr das Display berühren. Klingt unglaublich, scheint aber zu funktionieren, wie man in den Hands-On Videos sehr gut sehen kann.

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Update auf Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich im Sommer)
  • 3,7” Mobile BRAVIA Reality Display mit 854 x 480 Pixel
  • 1 GHz STE U8500 Dual-Core Prozessor
