Glove Mode makes the Sony Xperia sola perfect for cold weather climates
cursor ring shows you where the touch is being registered by the screen and if you decide to take off the gloves, the screen will acknowledge it as a "normal" touch allowing you to continue without disabling the Glove Mode on the device.
For those in cold weather climates, where wearing gloves is common once the cold weather arrives, this could be the difference in doing more but answering a call while out and about. The technology involved is able to differentiate your finger inside the glove from the glove itself. Check out the video to see Glove Mode in action.

Sony is a really good company from the not-so-distant past. I would really like to see them make a comeback. They haven't been doing well and are on the path like RIM's

Apple will probably buy all the patents for gloves, and then if anyone is wearing them they won’t let them use that technology.

My bad, I meant to say the lumia's screen got trolled by a mirdrange phone.

I want to see a demonstration of someone typing a message with gloves on before I'm impressed.

I believe Sola was introduced with this technology and months old hands on videos did show the gloved hands using Sola touchscreen well.
I think the news here is about making it active automatically with the new update.

So it will be a battery drain as with the Nokia Lumia 920 written in this article?http://www.phonearena.com/news
