Sony’s plans to launch a 13.3-inch e-Ink slater, which the company says is an ideal alternative to pen and paper. But if a rumor on Greek website Techblog is to be believed, then Sony is planning to take this a much further by launching a phablet called Xperia L4 that allows one to use a simple pencil as a stylus, GSMArena reports.
The report, not surprisingly, is scant on details as far as specifications are concerned and all that is known is that the Xperia L4 will sport a 6.4-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel rear camera and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 or 800 chipset.
More than the specifications, it is the stylus that has us interested. Crazy though it might sound, using a pencil sure has its advantages, like more accurate pointing and handwriting, plus not having the fear of losing the stylus as you will just be able to replace it for less than Rs 10.
Nonetheless we cannot help but feel that this sounds a bit too farfetched and we would advise you to take this with the proverbial pinch of salt.
