Hands-on with the Sony Dash


This is not your mother’s picture frame. In fact, it’s not actually supposed to be a picture frame and instead some sort of widget platform. Its wedge shaped so you can put it down flat on the table or, if you wish, you can carry it around like a wee tablet. Is it amazing? No. Is it better than a standard picture frame? Not specifically. What is it for? Man, I don’t even know.

Sony is a big company and they can do whatever they want. I don’t want to judge. However, their announcement of the Dash as anything more than a picture frame with a widget framework is disingenuous. They had the Mylo – and it didn’t sell – and they had the Mylo 2 – and it didn’t sell. Now they have this. I honestly don’t know what this is all about and I’m sure someone will buy it but it’s just a picture frame.
