Sony Dash – “Personal Internet Viewer”
Are you tired of running to catch a glimpse of your favorite cookery show every now-and-then from the kitchen or the garden? Does your PC irritate you while booting up and so, at times you just give up the idea of updating your Facebook status? Here is Sony Dash for a personal internet viewing experience, from anywhere in the house, without being hooked to your PC.
- Dash accesses your home wireless connection and serves you with over 1,000 free internet apps from Chumby Industries including news, weather, calendar, games, social networking, sports, traffic, TV shows, music video and more.
- An internal accelerometer supports vertical flip, so you can watch TV episodes upright or use the device as an e-book reader while placing it flat on your counter-top!
- You can listen to MP3s or internet radio through the built-in speakers or the headphone jack.
- There is a USB port too which enables you to view photos or videos uploaded from your PC.
- What more can you ask for when this pretty device functions as an alarm-clock and wakes you up in the morning or reminds you about your favorite app.
- It connects through the AC Current so you can place it anywhere in your house (provided there is a socket as the gadget doesn’t have an in-built battery!).
- It is easy to customize and form multiple user profiles to cater to each household member’s different customized internet view.
- Sony Dash facilitates you to run multiple sources of content in parallel. You can update your Facebook status or browse through your photo album while the internet radio is playing in the background.
Through the 7 inch colored touch-screen and widget-based UI you can remain connected to the internet content 24×7.
Here is how…
You wake up to Dash’s alarm and the internet radio followed by some stocks report and news.
In the kitchen the device can be used to catch up with your favorite recipe or to make the Cozi app manage and synch family calendars.
Before leaving the house you can check the weather and through NAVTEQ app browse the traffic condition.
Later in the day, Dash lets you enjoy humor apps or enjoy video or movies as Dash streams Netflix and other Bravia Internet Video sources such as Pandora, Blip.Tv, YouTube, etc.
In case you have guests you can enjoy photos on your elegant device (through Photobucket or USB drive) which allows special effects and can even play slide show.
If you want some health related tips then Dr. Oz app is there with some help. Moreover, you can get latest updates on apps through Sony Music and Pictures Entertainment for movie trailers and music videos.
At night you can enjoy videos on YouTube with your trendy gadget placed on your nightstand and sleep off with some light online music.
Why miss that favorite TV soap, a friend’s feed, e-mails on GMail, or Twitter when Sony Dash provides you with fresh content all throughout the day and never lets you miss the real time events that connect you to your surroundings.
