This is likely the future of accessing the internet as least from a casual browsing standpoint, now called the Sony Dash. I love Sony and I grew up buying Sony products for their quality. I hope that they improve on this product and make it cheaper.
It is ultimately inevitable that the Sony Dash will shrink so that you can hang it. It will weigh less and look like a small TV, with a better picture quality but what will ultimately make this device a killer device is voice recognition combined with gesture ability. So when I walk into the kitchen I wave my hand over the device and say "Traffic", it automatically turns on and lists the current traffic conditions. This is really not far from being practical as the voice recognition can be done.
