Back in January, Sony unveiled the Sony VAIO P-Series, a Netbook-spec'd kind of ultra portable PC which carries a new form factor anyway. With a very unique dimension, slightly larger than an office letter envelope, the VAIO P-Series is powered by Intel's Atom platform, features 2 GB RAM, either comes with a 60 GB HDD or 128 GB SSD and also includes - the for me so important - WWAN connectivity by featuring Option's quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA and GPS-enabled platform. The VAIO P weighs less than 618 - 640 g and the 8" screen, with a power efficient LED backlight, sports a quite uncommon resolution of 1600x768 pixel!

Unlike other Netbooks, and because Sony doesn't count the Vaio P as a Netbook at all, this ultra portable PC comes with Microsoft Windows Vista and features a Linux-based quick-start OS called XMB (XrossMediaBar) at the touch of a button. The XMB user interface is perfect for a quick browse on the web, instant messaging, music playback, etc.

The Vaio P above is an exclusive model (called VGN-P19VN/Q) which is currently available in Europe for pre-order from the Sony Style Store. Unlike the HDD versions, it's available in black only but features beside the SSD also an 1.6 GHz CPU instead of the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom CPU.
