Sony is getting into the spring mood by adding a dash of bright colors to their new VAIO P Series portable computers. Yet, color isn't the only lively upgrade on these 8-inch laptops.
Sony is trying to boast the VAIO P computers as somewhere in between a laptop and a smartphone - yet refrains from labeling it as a "netbook." Weighing in at only 1.32 pounds and built with 3G support, these notebooks are surely ready to go anywhere.
Developers behind the VAIO P Series have also incorporated an on-board accelerometer for toggling the screen display. Battery life comes in the form of two options: either up to five hours with the included battery, or up to 10 hours with a BPL23 battery that is sold separately. There is also a digital compass and GPS support to round off the portable-friendly features.
Here's what else to expect from the VAIO P Series:
8-inch LCD screen (1,600 x 768 resolution)
Windows 7 Home Premium
Intel Atom Z540 processor
2GB of DDR2 memory
64GB SSD Flash Drive
Two USB ports
Stereo speakers and microphone
The color scheme includes black, white, pink, green and orange. The new VAIO P Series computers will become available in June, although pricing hasn't been revealed yet.
UPDATE: US pricing has been announced and set at $800. It's available for pre-order at Sony Style stores now.
