Comeback Kids: The Sony Dash Personal Internet Viewer – Price no Object but Design Is

The 7” Sony Dash Personal Internet Viewer, the successor to the Chumby, a device with a similar form factor launched in April 2010 also had a similar aim, which was to replace your boring old alarm clock with a device that provided summarized versions of your favourite websites on a touch-centric interface. Certainly beats damaging your clock when waking in the morning, albeit a tad on the expensive for a do-it-all apps driven clock replacement, coasting in at a price of US$150 when compared to alternatives of a similar ilk.

Here is the motley crue for comparison: the Counter Culture, the US$85 Numbers Clock, the US$30 Clamshell Alarm Clock, the US$45 Modern Gears Table Alarm Clock, the US$45 Clocky by Nanda Home, the US$38 Lexon On Off Alarm Clock and the Chumby Classic, the predecessor of the Sony Dash and on whose form factor, functionality and possibly its US$150 price tag is based. Tables are always nice, so take a gander at the comparison below: Read more about Comeback Kids: The Sony Dash Personal Internet Viewer – Price no Object but Design Is
