Sony Mobile has opened pre-orders for the ‘Xperia Ear’ in Europe. Pre-orders for the in-ear personal assistant will be exclusively available through the Xperia Store, where it is priced at £179 in the UK and €199 across mainland Europe. To sweeten the deal, Sony is throwing in a £45/€50 voucher towards the purchase of your next Xperia phone made via the Xperia Store.
This voucher offer will expire on 13 November 2016, at which point the Xperia Ear will start shipping. The phone voucher can be used until 14 January 2017. To highlight what the Xperia Ear is capable of, Sony has launched a mini-documentary series illustrating how three brand ambassadors integrated the in-ear assistant into their busy lives. You can check out the videos below.
The Xperia Ear is powered by Sony Agent Technology, allowing you to send/receive messages, check your schedule, search and more – all without the need to pick up your smartphone. You simply need to just talk to the Xperia Ear and it will deliver the information straight to your ear. The device can also receive commands through head gestures (simply nod to confirm a command).
