The Sony Xperia Ear is a personal voice assistant that resides in your ear
The Xperia Ear promises to provide its users with “authentic voice interaction” via a smartphone companion app that will synchronize data between the two devices. Useful information, such as notifications about upcoming events, changes in weather conditions and calendar entries, among other things, will be spoken directly into the user's ear — likely in a soothing, well articulated female voice, if current voice assistants are anything to go by.
The Sony Xperia Ear will be available for purchase in November in select markets only. There is no information available yet on pricing, or which markets the device will launch in. The earpiece will be available in black and comes in a snug, rubber-coated carry case reminiscent of a Zippo lighter that also doubles as a charger. Neat!
