Sony, fresh from showing off a raft of new devices at CES, has teased another new arrival: Sony Dot Switch.

The 31 second teaser video shows a chap controlling a number of devices (or turning them on, at least) using a virtual white button on what looks like a Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc phone.

He kick starts a gramophone, a TV, a confetti explosion and a robotic arm that unveils a mystery black device.

The device: a small black box, could perhaps be some kind of media hub or maybe some kind of proprietary network hotspot. Who knows? Well, we all will come 21 February - the date mentioned in the video (so too early for an MWC announcement).

We just hope it isn't a big let down and has nothing to do with the fugly remote control that the electronic giant demoed to Pocket-lint over in Vegas.

RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
