Sony Japan VAIO P teaser
Sony Japan has posted a teaser page for what is believed to be the VAIO P, an upcoming netbook. Shown briefly in the page's Flash montage is a new keyboard, with raised keys similar to those on the VAIO TZ and TT. The updated keyboard has a trackball in the middle however, which may indicate that that the P is too small to fit a conventional trackpad.
Leaked specifications suggest that the P is an eight-inch notebook, featuring an LED-backlit screen running at an unusually high 1600x768 resolution. It is also said to use a 1.33GHz Intel processor, and have the option of a 60GB hard drive or a 128GB SSD. Unlike many netbooks, the P is also described as using Windows Vista Home Premium or Basic, instead of Linux or Windows XP.
