It seems that gesture-based controls which were made famous by the Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Kinect has now spilled over (in some way, so to speak) to the world of laptops, as Sony’s latest E Series 14P laptops that will hit Europe will also boast Sony’s very own Gesture Control feature, letting you swipe your finger between pages as well as adjust your music accordingly. Of course, right now, these gesture-based controls will play nice only with Windows Media Player, Internet Explorer 9, PowerDVD and PowerPoint, although who are we to rule out future compatibility settings? No idea on how much the Sony VAIO E Series 14P laptops will cost, but that ought to be fixed in due time.
About the specifications, the E Series 14P laptops will feature a 14″ display at 1366 x 768 resolution, running on an Intel Core i3 2550M processor, accompanied by 4GB RAM and a choice between the AMD Radeon HD 7670M or Intel HD Graphics 3000. Regardless of the model, you should be able to eke out around 7 hours of battery life from them. Gotta love the color choices though, they are definitely pleasing and easy on the eyes. [Press Release]
