NEW YORK — Sony is all about color
this summer with the release of updated
versions of its Vaio P-series netbook.
The P series has a severe rectangular
shape like an oversized business
envelope, and it comes in five colors:
Electric Orange, Neon Green, Hot Pink,
Icy White and Classic Black.
The 1.4-pound netbook is about 9.5
inches wide and just less than 5 inches
tall when opened.
The configuration allows for Sony
to place the track pad and mouse buttons
on the LCD bezel so the users can
hold it like a large PDA. There is also
a trackball in the keyboard, and, like
smartphone, the device can be turned
to view images or documents in either
a portrait or landscape mode.
There is also a one-touch resolution
button so users can quickly increase
the size of the onscreen type.
The P series was available for pre-orders
starting May 10 and will ship later
