At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Sony introduced a new "personal Internet Viewer", called the Dash. This is a device that you can put on your nightstand or your kitchen counter, and access web content via Flash-based applications.

While attending the show, WebProNews stopped by Sony's exhibit to get a closer look at the device. Abby Johnson provides that look in the following clip:

The device currently has over 1,000 free apps available, and it is open source, so anyone can create apps and submit them. Users can access things like weather, traffic, social networks, movies, music, etc. It has built in stereo speakers and a headphone jack.

The Dash will ship in April, and will retail for about $200. The question is, will consumers be interested in a device like this?
