Sony has been going great guns after splitting away with Ericsson. The company is producing some great phones which are being loved by fans and critics alike.
The Xperia Sola is a beautiful device with a 3.7 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. The device is powered by a 1GHz dual core Cortex A9 processor and comes with 512 MB of RAM. These specs are decent enough to ensure smooth functioning of the phone. Out of the box, the device runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with Sony's Timescape UI on top, but it can be upgraded to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
The distinctive feature on this device is the floating touchscreen, that helps you to highlight an icon on the screen by moving your finger over the icon before you tap on it to open. Other than that, the Xperia Sola sports a 5-megapixel shooter that can record HD videos at 30 fps. The phone comes with all the standard connectivity options and packs a 1320 mAh battery that promises a talk time of up to 6 hours.
With 8 GB of internal storage, that can be beefed up by 32 GB using a Micro-SD card, the Xperia Sola comes at a price of Rs. 19,999.
