Sony's Take on the UMPC


SAN DIEGO, May 16, 2006 - Sony Electronics today introduced the VAIO(R) UX Micro PC, placing full-size computer performance in a pocket-sized package.

Weighing just over a pound, the new PC has a Microsoft(R) XP Professional operating system and an Intel(R) CoreTM Solo Ultra Low Voltage CPU for fast processing and long battery life.

The UX model also features a 4.5-inch wide SVGA screen with XBRITETM technology for viewing that slides up to expose an integrated keyboard. This allows you to access familiar applications easily in the same way you would on a full-sized computer.

The pocket-sized PC also comes equipped with a stylus and Sony's VAIO touch launcher for quick access to functions frequently used such as Internet access, e-mail, various computer applications, games and music. Just push the launcher button located on the side of the unit.
