If you’re interested in Sony Mobile’s “Floating Touch” technology, you’ll be able to try it out first hand very soon. Harvey Norman have the Xperia Sola up for pre-order on their website with a $499 price tag (spoiler: it’s $50 less at MobiCity). There’s no launch date, however, it does say May 2012 — with the process of elimination, I can confirm that’s within the next ~21 days. The only colour the seem to be offering at the moment is black, which let’s be honest, is clearly the best colour for the phone (the red above is pretty dodgy).

    Floating Touch… Defective design concept. The Sony designers must have never read Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, else they’d know just where this idea leads, and why this idea is a BadThing.

    Red looks fine to me

    That being said, if you go for this, whether $500 from Harvey Norman or $450 from Mobicity I think you are a little insane with an Xperia S costing that much from JB HiFi with a little bit of haggling.

    Some people mention smaller size but I think the other Xperia’s are better devices, only advantage here is microSD card slot.
