If you’ve ever been tempted to text and drive then you’ll love this new in-ear innovation that allows you to respond to texts and get things done without having to lift a finger. Sony Xperia Ear, an in-ear personal assistant, is designed to bring a new way of communicating, without compromising on enjoying the world around you. The easy-to-use device allows you to communicate and get things done via conversational voice interaction and simple head gestures and Sony Mobile Communications recently announced that the new in-ear smart product is now available exclusively through takealot.com.

Powered by Sony Agent Technology; an adaptive platform, Xperia Ear responds to verbal commands, so you can ask it to make a call, perform an internet search, dictate a message or navigate to a certain location. The device also provides useful information such as your schedule, weather and the latest news to keep you up-to-date on the go. The device is the ultimate in hands-free communication and will prove to be a treat for those who are always out and about for work.

“Living increasingly interconnected lives, here’s a product that enables us to stay in touch, keep organised and plan our time, hands-free,” says Julie-Anne Walsh, Chief Marketing Officer at Takealot. We are proud to be SONY’s exclusive South African retail partner for the launch of the Xperia Ear.”
