Sony introduces a New Vaio P with accelerometer and PS3 Remote Play.

Sony introduces a New Vaio P with accelerometer and PS3 Remote Play.

Sony introduces this morning, a new Vaio P, a completely remade from ground-up Vaio P, designed to bring way more versatility to the already sexy Vaio P. The basic model comes with an Atom Z530 (1.60GHz) or an Atom Z560 (2.13GHz) on Order made ones, with 2GB of RAM, 64GB of SSD and an Intel SCH US15W chipset offering a nice 1600×768 resolution on 8” monitor. Our new Vaio P comes with WiMax, WiFi ABGN, Bluetooth a 0.31Mpix Camera with a total weight of 619g. The new Vaio P also introduces a new touch sensitive trackpad on the right side of its monitor. To spice up things a little more, Sony will offer the Vaio P in 5 different colors as well as a “Crocodile” skin.

But the design and specs change are not the most important aspect of this new release and Sony with this new Vaio P brings the PS3 Remote play to its Vaio Line-up (The Vaio P will be the first to carry the PS3 Remote Play). If you own a PS3 with the latest firmware (3.30) you will be capable to access to your PS3 contents and even recorded TV programs from the comfort of your Vaio P. The new Vaio P also brings something quite new over at SONY, with the usage of an accelerometer that will tilt your screen accordingly and will further enhanced its GPS function, or to even let you jump from one picture to another in a sideshow via a simple tilt.

Anyway, like usual we will have to wait to have this baby in hands in order to fully appreciate its new features.

Press Release

Sony delivers a smarter on-the-move computing experience: Ultra-portable, easy to carry new VAIO P Series
10 May 2010
· Colourful ultra-portable PC weighs just over 600g
· New design for two-handed operation while standing or walking
· GPS and Digital Compass
· Accelerometer sensor
· Built-in Everywair 3G (WiMax in the JAPAN)
· Clear, bright, widescreen VAIO Display Plus

· Easy to use with Quick Web Access

It’s smaller than a notebook and smarter than a smartphone: the colourful VAIO P Series from Sony is your perfect partner for on-the-move computing.

Weighing just over 600g and slipping effortlessly into a bag or jacket pocket, new VAIO P Series gives you all the power of a fully-featured Windows® computing experience… and so much more.

Ideal for busy people who can’t sit still, it’s the first VAIO designed for simple operation if you’re standing or walking. The central trackball is complemented by an additional touchpad and mouse buttons. Duplicating the main controls, they’re located at either edge of the screen for comfortable operation with both thumbs while you’re holding the computer in two hands.

VAIO P Series is the first notebook computer from Sony with built-in GPS and a new Digital Compass. Perfect for telling you where you are and what’s happening around you, they can help you find your hotel or a nearby restaurant if you’re standing on the street corner in an unfamiliar city1.

A brand-new VAIO Location Search software offers a real-time map view without tying up your web browser. Your map position and orientation are displayed along with nearby Points of Interest and even local weather conditions.

The ultra-light notebook’s ‘on-the-go’ credentials for travellers are boosted with Everywair 3G on-board, giving high-speed connectivity to mobile networks (where available).

New VAIO P is the first notebook from Sony with a built-in accelerometer that responds to physical movements. Just give VAIO a gentle shake to ‘flick’ through pictures or the pages of a PDF document, or navigate back and forth through your web browsing history.

The sensor also recognises when VAIO P Series is turned on its side, automatically ‘flipping’ the screen for easy reading of documents or web pages in portrait mode. The notebook’s additional mouse buttons are perfectly placed for comfortable page-turning when you’re reading in portrait position – just like a paperback book or magazine.

New VAIO P Series is beautifully designed for easy operation, with a comfortable full-pitch keyboard for easy typing, plus a bright, extra-wide VAIO Display Plus that’s ideally proportioned for viewing movies or two web pages side-by-side. There’s also an ambient light sensor that dims screen illumination for comfortable viewing while saving power.

For extra convenience, dedicated buttons are provided for Quick Web Access and one-touch access to VAIO Care. There’s also a handy new Change Resolution button: instantly select a larger font size for easy on-screen reading, or choose maximum detail for HD movie viewing.

Available in five vibrant colours (black, white, pink, green and orange), the new VAIO P Series is complemented by a choice of stylish accessories that includes a distinctively perforated silicone slip case and carry strap.

The new VAIO P Series ultra-portable notebook computer is available from June 2010.
