I picked up a Sony dash at Best Buy today. I’ve been waiting for this to come out since I heard about it from CES. I have posted a few pictures of unboxing it below. When I first plugged it in it showed an intro video which I proceeded to skip. It then searched for wireless networks and after finding mine it asked for the security key. After connecting it said there was a software update available. It updated the software from version 1.0 to 1.7. After it restarted I started browsing the apps from the dash. When I tried to select one to add it said I had to go to sony.com/mydash to register first. I went online to set up an account. The dash gave me a 4 digit code that I used on the website to register my device. Once that was completed I could add apps from the website or from the dash itself.
So far I really like it. I have it set up to show my friends flickr photos but it seems to only show a few of them on repeat. I also have to see if I can get the flickr app to stay active. It keeps cycling through the apps I have on the device. I think it is going to take me a while to figure out all of the features. It came with very minimal documentation so I have a lot of exploring to do.
