"Pepper" handset we saw yesterday didn't stay obscure for very long. Sony has just announced the Xperia sola (keeping its maddening trend of strange capitalization going strong) for launch in the second quarter of 2012 in Europe. Other territories will follow, presumably including Japan and (eventually) the US. The Sola fits in between the Xperia U and Xperia P announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, adding in premium features including camera gestures and NFC tags.

someone hacked the Microsoft Kinect to work on Android? Well there's now a company that's working to officially bring a Kinect style gesture based app to Android tablets and handsets. The company is XTR3D and they're creating an app called iZi which will read the gestures for navigating a variety of apps including games play.
