UPDATED: Sony has released a software update that rolled out in the first week of June 2010. I've edited the review below to identify issues resolved in the software update. I have noticed some freeze-ups since the software update, but they've been relatively infrequent. If you buy the device new now, it will update itself as soon as it connects to the internet.

The Sony Dash is marketed as a "personal internet viewer." In my opinion, it does not live up to that name. Others are more accurately calling it "glimpse internet" and "upgraded alarm clock." It's a 7-inch touch tablet designed with a weighted wedge style, meant to sit on a countertop or bedside table. Sony basically licensed or bought the Chumby OS and added its own internet video service as well as re-designing the UI a bit for the larger screen. I was attracted to this device because I liked the idea of a Chumby, but it seemed overly bulky and too small of a screen. The Dash takes all the good parts about a Chumby and adds a bigger screen and a better design.

I'm giving a lot more detail below, but to sum up: what you think of this device is largely going to depend on what you want from it. To me, this device's best tagline would have identified it as a "wake-up station"...telling you everything you need or want to know as you wake up to begin your day. My rating of this device is based on what I expected out of it: in short, a glorified alarm clock. If your alarm clock could:

* tell you weather and traffic at a glance
* have multiple alarms per day, each with their own sounds, configurable in any way you want...if you want to wake up at a different time each day, with a different tone each day, it can handle that.

I've been wanting something like this for my living room for a long time as I refuse to hang a clock on the wall or use a clunky looking alarm clock. It's a beautiful little gadget with nice clean lines and is exactly what I wanted in terms of form factor.

It's easy enough to get going; just plug it in and use the wizard to connect it to your wireless 802.11 b/g network. The only part about the setup I didn't like is that you need to register it on Sony's website to activate and manage the "channels" and apps. The website definitely needs some work and is awkward at best, and after registering my Dash and adding some apps, I had to power-cycle the Dash before it synchronized and my apps became available.

Regarding the hardware, it's a gorgeous little gadget but a little short of perfection. The touch screen lacks the responsiveness of modern smartphone screens (which is what most of us will compare the screen to). I'm also slightly bummed at the resolution; 800x480 pixels is a little sparse for a 7" screen these days. By comparison, HTC's upcoming Evo 4G phone will have 800x480 on a 4.3" screen. My nerdy side thinks it would've been nice if they had crammed more pixels in there, but take comfort because frankly from a distance it doesn't matter as much. An interesting feature is that the screen will flip if you turn the unit upside down. I suppose that would be useful if you want it higher up and would like the screen facing downward, but you'd have to figure out some way to wall mount it and deal with the power cord or stabilize it upside down on a shelf somehow (it's not set up for either).

Regarding the software, it needs work. The interface isn't the most intuitive thing around; e.g.

The Dash hardware is nice. It has a bright screen, a nice look, reasonable speakers, and a reasonably quick processor.

But the software. Ugh.

The software reeks of beta software. Lots of features are missing, even ones they advertise in the boot up video on the device! The USB port doesn't work for anything, the device can't display traffic, and the alarm functions are very basic. It has an auto-dim sensor, but the software for that is broken. It's advertised as an "ultimate alarm clock," but what advanced alarm clock only allows 5 minute snooze periods and requires you to press at bunch of buttons before you go to bed each night?

Above all of that, the UI is terribly slow. Button presses take a second to register, which is infuriating and makes no sense on something with a 500MHz processor.

Sony is promising updates to the unit, but I spoke to a Sony customer service specialist today, and they stated that Sony doesn't publish feature lists nor dates for upcoming software releases. So until the update is out, customers have no idea when it's coming or what will be in there. There's too much that needs to be fixed for this device to make sense for someone to buy today.

Stay away for now until Sony releases some major updates.
