Sony Xperia sola touchscreen does gloves too, video proves

13 March, 2012

Sony has obviously put quite a lot of effort in the design of the Xperia sola touchscreen. The smartphone may only be a mid-range offering, but it's shaping up to be one of the most interesting devices we have seen recently.

It turns out that the floating touch technology that allows the Sony Xperia sola to detect your finger hovering over the screen isn't the only trick it holds up its sleeve. It turns out that the Xperia sola screen is also geared to detect touches through non-conductive fabric, which suggests that it will work with gloves.

The proof came from the following hands-on video that the guys from created at the Droidcon event in Berlin.

We also got a few live shots of the Sony Xperia sola, letting us enjoy its sleek lines once again.
