Sony has obviously put quite a lot of effort in the design of the Xperia sola touchscreen. The smartphone may only be a mid-range offering, but it’s shaping up to be one of the most interesting devices we have seen recently.

It turns out that the floating touch technology that allows the Sony Xperia sola to detect your finger hovering over the screen isn’t the only trick it holds up its sleeve. It turns out that the Xperia sola screen is also geared to detect touches through non-conductive fabric, which suggests that it will work with gloves.

The proof came from the following hands-on video that the guys from AndroidNext.de created at the Droidcon event in Berlin.

Archos Child Pad

Tablet PC’s have really become quite popular that even kid’s now would want to play with them. Unfortunately, most tablets today are not designed for use with kids in mind. It is because of this that a new tablet niche for makers has sprouted up. There are now devices like the new Archos Child Pad specifically designed for kids.

The new Archos Child Pad is introduced in the market in order to fill the void for tablets that kids can safely use. It comes with a 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM and runs with the Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS. It also comes with a 7 inch touch screen display and uses a colorful kid-friendly interface with colorful icons and direct access to a number of apps and games designed for kids to enjoy and play with. The new Archos Child Pad is expected to come out by the end of this month. It is expected to cost around US$129.
