Pope lights up the world's largest Christmas tree with Android, Sony's product placement reaches new heights

The Pope lights up the world's largest Christmas tree with the help of Android
Say what you will about the fate of Sony's Android tablets, but the company surely knows how to make a product placement, as numerous movies can confirm.

This time a Sony Android tablet was given to the Pope Benedict XVI himself, for the holy task of lighting up the world's largest Christmas tree setup, which is located in Gubbio, Italy.

The tree consists of hundreds of trees growing on the slopes of Mount Ingino, decorated with miles of Christmas lighting. It spans on 130 000 meters square, with a giant comet on the top of the mountain taking a thousand of those in itself. From the press release:

The Vatican press release doesn't specify if it was a Sony Tablet S, but putting "Tablet" and "Android" in quotes smells Android rookie to us, we've seen the Pope play with an iPad before to send his first tweet.
