Sony announced their first Netbook today with the Sony VAIO W Series VPCW119XJ. Sony vehemently claimes that the Sony VAIO P is not a netbook, but the Sony VAIO W Series is definitely one as it runs on an Intel Atom CPU and the Japanese to English translation reveals the term Internet Book.

The Sony VAIO W sports the typical Netbook specifications with Intel Atom N280 (1.66 GHz), 10.1 inch screen with 1366 × 768px, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, Intel GMA 950 Graphics, W-LAN b/g/n, Camera, Bluetooth, 3.5h battery and Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3.

The first Sony Netbook is not a stunner and I doubt Sony is going global with this model. Sony is behind the latest netbook offerings of Asus and others.

Measurements of the Sony VAIO W are (not including protrusion) Width 267.8mm × height 27.5mm (most thick part 32.4mm) × Depth 179.6mm. The VAIO W is available in pink and white (also in brown but only for business customers) starting in August in Japan for 59,800 Yen (~$630).

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
