Sony debuted its $900, 1.4-lb, 8” LED screen gadget “Vaio P Series Lifestyle PC” Netbook, which Sony is describing as “a new line of high-performance, ultra-portable notebooks that fuses Sony’s eye-catching design and mobility.” The fast-start Vaio Media plus interface ensures that you can interact with the thing as a mere entertainment center and yet have a terrific Net-savvy device on hand. It has 802.11 Wi-Fi, 3G and Bluetooth connectivity right out of the box. We liked the XBRITE-ECO crisp display, though the available resolutions (800×600, 1024×768, and 1600×768) were a bit dismaying for show-weary eyes.
Sony showed two cameras in its new “Webbie” line, designed to expedite the transfer of your precious moments to the ubiquitous YouTubes. The larger of the two has 5X optical zoom (or 20X digital), 1080p HD output, and a predicted 80 minutes of battery life. It’ll retail for around $179.
