Sony Launches the VAIO P Series

A few weeks ago, some rumors began to circulate that Sony was launching something new in the realm of portable PCs. Today, the rumors have been confirmed as the electronics giant announced the VAIO P Series Lifestyle PC at a Press Conference at CES.

The VAIO P can use both 3G Broadband and 802.11 wireless LAN. Sony boasted today that now a user can have access to the Internet anywhere he or she travels with the help of Verizon’s network.

With a screen measuring of about 8 inches, the VAIO P is one of the smallest (dare I say it) netbooks on the market as it can fit in a jacket pocket, handbag, or even a business envelope. Even though the screen may be small, it is wide enough to display the width of an entire website without any horizontal scrolling. The VAIO P is definitely one of the lightest of portable PCs, weighing in at about 1.4 pounds.

The VAIO P has a built-in GPS device for navigation that requires no internet connection. It is also Bluetooth compatible, and it comes with a Media Bar so the user can access their favorite audio and video files in the corner of a screen with a quick click.

All this, plus it comes with an integrated webcam. The VAIO P is available for pre-order now for about $900 in five colors including garnet red, emerald green, onyx black, crystal white, and classic black.
