Sony’s Xperia Touch projector arrives in the US at an absurd $1,700

by John_A

We’ve been keeping an eye on Sony’s Xperia Touch projector for over a year now (closer to two, in fact). It’s a smart speaker, a projector and an Android tablet all combined into one device, and the US price (which was revealed today) reflects that. The Xperia Touch’s suggested retail price is a whopping $1,700 and is available at Amazon, the Sony Square display room in New York and select T-Mobile stores in Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami.

Do its features justify that hefty price tag? Its projector features turn any flat surface (wall, table, floor, etc.) into an interactive screen. It uses a combination of infrared light and a built-in camera to detect and interpret motion at a 60 fps rate. The device is portable, but the battery only lasts about an hour with continuous use. The resolution is 1366 x 768 and it can project to a maximum of 80 inches. It also has a 13-megapixel camera, a stereo speaker and responds to voice commands using Google Assistant. You can see more about the Xperia Touch in our hands-on review and in the video below.
