Sony VAIO P netbook coming to Verizon

Subsidized Sony VAIO P at Verizon

Wireless provider Verizon will soon add the Sony VAIO P netbook to its subsidized lineup, according to a Monday Phone Arena leak. Thus far, Verizon offers the Gateway LT2016U, HP Mini 311 and Mini 110 netbooks, but the VAIO P would be the smallest and lightest of the four. The system should be the standard 8-inch netbook but will have a built-in modem with both EVDO and GSM support.

A 160GB hard drive is said to contain Windows 7 Home Premium, though no other current VAIO P has such as large storage device, so this is either a mistake on Verizon's part or an indication of a new model coming soon.

The netbook should cost $300 through Verizon when paired with a two-year data contract, but may also include a $100 rebate, like the other netbooks Verizon offers. A move of the sort is significant, as VAIO P typically start at $850 and would receive a very heavy subsidy as a result.

A ship date is expected to be unveiled on November 5th at a press event.
