Sony is well known for their mobile gadgets and what they released now makes me speechless again (I want it, I want it, I want it... ;-) )

The Japanese electronics giant on Monday unveiled the world's smallest personal computer that runs on Microsoft's Windows XP operating system.

The hand-held gadget called 'type U', a new product in Sony's VAIO series, weighs only 550 gm and measures 6.7 inches in width and is 108 millimeters high, the company said.

Priced at $1,873, including Japanese sales tax, the type U will hit the local market at the end of May.

Its standard memory capacity is 256 megabytes and hard-disc drive capacity is about 20 gigabytes. Input can be done by either a stylus - a pointed instrument used on pressure-sensitive screens - or a collapsible keyboard.

If this is running Windows XP for Tablet PCs (and not a propriety "Tablet PC" like interface) could become a serious competitor for further Pocket PC developments, at least it shows where the way might goes too.

In addition Sony also launched a range of other VAIO (Video Audio Integrated Operation) brand products, including a desktop computer with high quality screen called 'type V' and the portable music player 'VAIO pocket' equipped with a hard-disc drive that can store up to 13,000 songs and a color crystal display which might become a serious iPOD competitor.

"These new entertainment-driven devices offer a glimpse of Sony's vision of enabling users to enjoy a personal network of high-quality audio and imaging," Sony said in a statement.

Wow, amazing stuff from Japan... 8O Good that I will fly to Tokyo this year - now I know for what I will start saving my money for. ;-)
