Sony Xperia Touch now available for purchase in the U.S. for a small fortune6
Customers who want to buy the Xperia Touch interactive projector will have to come up with no less than $1699.99. Keep in mind that T-Mobile will only sell the device in select flagship stores in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami.
The Xperia Touch interactive projector is supposed to turn any flat surface into a 23-inch HD touchscreen via a horizontal or vertical ultrashort-throw laser projection. The device runs Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box and provides users access to Google Play Store.
On top of that, the Xperia Touch features a 13-megapixel camera with Exmor RS sensor and a two-way stereo speaker. According to Sony, the device was built using the company's SXRD projection display technology, which uses a combination of infrared light and real-time detection via its built-in camera, at a rate of 60fps (frames per second).
Connectivity-wise, Sony Xperia Touch includes Bluetooth 4.2, USB Type-C, NFC (Near Field Communication), HDMI and Wi-Fi support. It's also worth noting that the projector's battery should provide up to 1 hour of usage (based on continuous video playback at half brightness).
