Sony VAIO netbook exposed

Sony's long-anticipated netbook has been revealed through filings with the FCC, a report from Engadget suggests. Two versions, known as the PCG-1P1L and PCG-1P2L, have been through wireless testing with the government body; the PCG prefix is known to represent Sony's VAIO portable line. More crucially, the computers match typical netbook dimensions, at approximately 9.5 inches long by 4.5 inches wide. This should make them smaller than many rival systems.

The products should rely on some variant of Windows for their OS. Most hardware specifications are currently unknown, but due to testing, several wireless capabilities have been confirmed. In addition to Bluetooth and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, the netbooks should support cellular broadband through HSPA and EVDO receivers. This is unusual for the industry, as the few netbooks that do support cellular technology typically use one of the two formats, and not both.
