Sony VAIO P Spotted
Sony's VAIO P has been spotted in its entirety today ahead of its expected debut at Sony's press conference on Wednesday. Displays seen by Engadget at the CES setup confirm an extremely wide, shallow design which drops the traditional trackpad in favor of a pointer. The views confirm few technical details but do reveal a built-in webcam to the side of the display as well as Memory Stick and SD card readers.
The system is already known to carry a 1.33GHz Atom, 2GB of memory, choices for a 60GB hard drive or 128GB solid-state drive as well as at least options for 3G data and GPS. Sony is believed to be pricing higher-end versions near $1,000 after tax but hasn't yet leaked official American pricing.
