Sony TX EVDO Rev A

Sony's TX laptop line has always stressed portability over performance. This is certainly reflected in a significant update to the TX introduced today that shifts attention primarily towards the laptops' networking than raw speed. The TXN10 is one of the first laptop models to receive built-in support for EVDO Revision A mobile broadband, which will first be launched by Sprint later this year. The 11.1-inch computer has an external antenna to help reach the 800Kbps maximum of Sprint's new network. Sony is also upgrading the performance of the systems by replacing the current Pentium M processors with low-voltage Core Solos that should still maintain an impressive 5 to 11 hours of battery life. The TXN10 will be available later this week for $2300 when built with the EVDO option.
