Sony VAIO P to get WiMAX

Sony Japan has recently announced its VAIO P netbook will get a WiMAX option by month's end. Pre-orders will begin on July 27th, with the netbook shipping just three days later, on July 30th. The option will add the equivalent of $108 to the price of the VAIO P plus a monthly subscription fee for the service itself. The WiMAX module will allow users to access the Internet away from Wi-Fi at broadband speeds of about 12Mbps. The system in the US and Japan normally has built-in 3G.

Only corporate VAIO P models will normally be eligible for the option, however, but buyers who build their own Windows Vista-powered version via Sony's Owner Made site will also be able to get a WiMAX-enabled VAIO P. At the same time, Sony also says its VAIO Z series notebooks will get the upgrade, though details of this update aren't mentioned.
