The Dash is a device manufactured by Sony that connects using Wi-Fi to the Internet. It has a touch screen which the user can use to browse information or listen to music. It is not a portable device since it does not have an internal battery. It is positioned as a personal internet viewer which can act as an alarm clock, internet radio, digital photo frame and many other uses. It has applications which can be downloaded onto the device. These are the same as those supported by the Chumby device.

History

Sony announced the Dash at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show.[2] It was made available for sale in late April 2010. [3] Originally the device was only usable in the United States, with international customers getting complete device lockout with the message "Error: Missing XAPI Service Mode". On June 25, Sony released a software upgrade allowing Dash to be used in other (if not all) countries. The device does not have international power settings, and can only be powered by mains electricity of 120v 60hz. [4]
