Sony has finally brought its Xperia Touch projector to market at $1,699.99. The device can project a fully functional Android interface onto a table, wall, or other flat surface in your home, and it can be used to watch movies or play video games, too.
The Xperia Touch can project a 23-inch multi-touch Android interface that works well, or it can do up to 80 inches on the wall for movie and video game viewing. However, it only has a 1366×768 resolution, 100 lumens of brightness, and a 4,000:1 contrast ratio.
Ars got some hands-on time with the Xperia Touch at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, and we found that the 23-inch projection created some fun and handy new use cases. However, the picture quality left something to be desired—especially at this high price point.
The multi-touch interface leans on a built-in, 60fps camera and an infrared light array. It runs Android Nougat and has 3GB of memory, Bluetooth 4.2, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, 32GB of storage, a gyroscope, and an accelerometer. The official specs page doesn’t specify the chipset for this release model, but it had a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 650 SoC back at MWC. It also comes with a 13MP camera.
