Ever wanted to connect your smartphone to your TV screen? Sony has made it possible with the SmartDock that lets you connect your Xperia smartphone to the dock for a ”full PC experience” on your TV. It is not exactly a full PC experience but it opens up new possibilities.

The SmartDock basically uses HDMI to project the image and if you have a newer Sony TV you can browse the smartphone’s music, pictures, videos and app via the TV remote (with HDMI-CEC). Sony says that you can also use a keyboard and mouse.

The SmartDock includes USB connectors if you want to connect external devices (such as the keyboard or mouse). And if you have a wireless dongle solution, you can use that.
