Sony's "four-screen" platform teased, to be called Dot Switch?
Sony's idea to make its TVs, computers, tablets and smartphones interact with each other seamlessly has been five years in the making, he clarified in November last year, and the presence of another company in its smartphone unit, by which it had to run decisions, was only hampering progress.
Well, now that Sony Ericsson is Sony Mobile Communications, nothing is stopping the dream from being fulfilled. Sony outed a video which shows how things will eventually work across the board. If you are wondering what is this bright yellow dot displayed by every device in the clip - apparently the technology might be called Dot Switch, and will be presented on February 21, if the teaser holds water.
When announcing the Sony xperia ion for AT&T at CES, Sony said in the press release that it will allow "effortless sharing of content with easy connectivity across multiple screens within the world of Sony", so that could be the Dot Switch thingy.

Sony won't do this if it's not backed up with their own patents..

iPhone owners, I guess it's the time to switch. Yes, Apple isn't as innovative and creative as Sony.

Apple isnt creative at all, they just set the norm. iPhones are so simple and there is nothing different about them AT ALL. It's just basic, and normal.
Windows Phone owner speaking btw
