Sony has announced another Xperia handset of its Xperia NXT line-up devices. A mid-range spec’d Sony Xperia Sola has just been officially by the manufacturer. Previously the Xperia Sola handset also known as Sony MT27i Pepper. We already reported about the ‘Sola’ trademarking by Sony last month. Xperia Sola has got an interesting magic feature called “Floating Technology’, which brings navigation for magic web browsing without touching the screen. That means you can do that by placing your finger over the item that you want to highlight without actually tapping on the display. So it acts like a moving mouse cursor on your computer.
