With Sony now going at it solo in the handset market after parting ways with Ericsson, it has continued to come out with newer smartphones to keep ad maintain its customer base. It is coming up with smartphones that offer some unique features to keep interest up among the smartphone users. This time, its new Sony Xperia Sola smartphone comes with a feature that literally lets users navigate without touching the screen.
The new Sony Xperia Sola features a 1GHz dual core processor and runs on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, upgradable to the version 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The smartphone also comes with a Mobile BRAVIA Engine for razor sharp images and videos.

It also comes with NFC SmartTags function that lets users connect to other devices wirelessly or via Bluetooth by simply moving the phone to a nearby SmartTag.
