Sony gives VAIO P netbook new OS, CPUs

Sony provided a glimpse of updates to come to the US on Wednesday with a British update to the VAIO P. The 8-inch netbook has primarily updated to add Windows 7 and should run faster on similar hardware as a result thanks to better performance on low-end hardware. At the same time, Sony has upgraded the processors themselves. Two P31 variants have the 1.86GHz Atom Z540 (versus 1.33GHz or 1.6GHz most older models) while the P39 runs on a 2GHz Atom Z550.

Every one of the three models continues to center on an ultra-dense 1600x768 display and has 2GB of RAM. As high-end European models, they all carry HSPA-based 3G modems in addition to the usual Wi-Fi. The P31 editions use 80GB rotating hard disks where the P39 has a 128GB solid-state drive.

The UK pages so far don't mention prices or when any of the VAIOs will ship. US information hasn't surfaced yet, but the public appearance may hint at a US update soon. [via Engadget]
