Sony Unleashes The VAIO UX Micro PC
Although I still believe that UMPC devices will remain a niche market, similar to that of the Tablet PC, they do have potential. One of the biggest drawbacks to them is the lack of a physical keyboard and that’s where Sony’s newest variation of their U Series VAIO, the UX Micro PC, has a leg up on the competition. Naturally, Sony is eschewing the whole UMPC moniker and continuing to do their own thing, but the UX Micro doesn’t lack for features because of that. Crammed into its tiny enclosure (150.2 x 95 x 38.2mm closed) is a 4.5” XBrite touchscreen LCD with a 1024x600 resolution, an Intel Core Solo ULV processor running at 1.06GHz, an itty-bitty keyboard, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, EDGE, USB 2.0, a MemoryStick Duo slot, a CompactFlash slot, a folding antenna,two
cameras and a biometric fingerprint sensor. If that’s not enough, a docking station is included that tacks on three more USB ports, FireWire, Ethernet, VGA output, and an A/V port. There’s got to be a kitchen sink in there somewhere.
It all comes at a price though, and a painful one at that - $1,800 USD when it becomes available in July.
