"[It's a] race to the bottom."
Remember that statement made by Mike Abary, Sony's US SVP of Information Technology Products Division handling the Vaio, on the current Netbook trend? Well, look who just announced a full-fledged netbook:
That's right. Sony has just announced Sony Vaio W , the company's first ever netbook release (but apparently, only because they insist that Sony Vaio P is an ultraportable notebook or UMPC and far from being underpowered). Like so many other netbooks, it ships with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor and 1GB of RAM. It runs on Windows XP OS and dons a 10.1-inch screen with a quite unique 1366 x 768 resolution often seen in HDTVs.
Sony hasn't disclosed its price and projected release date just yet.
