1. 6” EREADER WITH ENHANCED TOUCHSCREEN

E-readers from Sony have always looked the part; the problem is nobody buys them. This version is the lightest reader in the world, again using E-ink paper. It will offer connectivity to public libraries in the US but the decider will be price.

2. SONY TABLET P MULTITOUCH FLIP-SCREEN
Sony’s most radical new release attempts to reinvent the wheel with a duel touch-screen folding tablet. Its appearance is part Nintendo DS and part iPad, and while watching films on it would be tough, it looks like a good bet.

3. VAIO L SERIES 3D TOUCHSCREEN DESKTOP
The Vaio L Series touchscreen desktop PC is a series of great ideas thrown into a single box; at once brilliant and unusable. And now it’s in 3D! It will be great to watch movies on but still struggles to justify its existence.

4. VAIO S SERIES
The new, lightweight S Series comes with a 15-inch screen and a slimmer design, in a somewhat familiar aluminium hue. It’s a powerhouse of a laptop, not cheap but a real contender at the premium (expensive) end of the market.

5. MDR-NC200D NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES
Need to get away from the world for a while? Sony says these headphones can cancel out 98.2 per cent of ambient sound, using AI to scan your surroundings and block out the noise. Expect to pay upwards of £200.
