Although the Sony Dash — the compact personal Internet viewer we first learned about at CES — won't be available until April 29, it somehow escaped the warehouse and found its way into a recent Usher video. The freak-nasty vid reminds me of the new Star Trek movie with all of its lens flares, but I'm wondering which app Usher is using to track that PYT in his underground club. Still wondering what the Dash is all about? I've got your answers right here, and if you're into it, check out the entire video over at Vevo.
The Sony Dash ($199) is quickly moving up the ranks on my gadget wish list for a few reasons: it's portable, it's easy to use, and it gives you access to 1,500 applications from everything from weather forecasts to Dr. Oz lifestyle tips. Now, you can stream Netflix movies and TV episodes with the new, dedicated Netflix app.
Just load up your queue, and with a few taps, you'll have access to it all on the Dash's seven-inch touchscreen. What would I use this for? Watching movies in bed or while I work out (if I were lucky enough to have a treadmill in my home, this would be priceless!), watch cooking shows in the kitchen, or take it outside to stream music for a dinner party. I'm falling in love, but I'll will have to wait until it's available to buy in April to make this gadget mine.
At this year's CES, Sony unleashed a personal Internet viewer called the Dash to the world. But I recently came across the HP DreamScreen, which looks and acts similarly to the Dash's portable model and thought they were essentially the same product. I started asking myself: what's the difference? While there's a lot these two have in common, they are drastically different.
