Sony will release the Ultra Personal Computer in the USA
At only over 1 pound, Sony's VAIO U Ultra Portable PC is a full Microsoft Windows XP computer, on a form factor that resembles that of a PDA. The Sony U750P can be a PDA, or a tablet PC. Doubling as a portable media player, this "pocketable" PC allows users to download entertainment content and enjoy it anywhere.

The U750P unit's 5-inch display with XBRITE LCD is perfect for movies and photos with crisp, high-contrast playback. The pocket computer comes with Memory Stick and Compact Flash media slots, and the user can control the computer through intuitive thumb controls. This includes changing the display orientation on the fly, from landscape to portrait mode and back, for optimal viewing of virtually any content. It also comes with integrated 802.11 b/g wireless LAN.

There are multiple input modes on the new model. Using the stylus and virtual keyboard on the unit's touch panel screen, user can compose email messages or navigate files even while standing up. Handwriting recognition software simplifies note-taking or annotating documents. Users can also quickly launch programs or execute common commands with thumb-controlled action buttons, or draft longer text files with the included foldout keyboard.

Other bundled accessories include the inner-ear headphones and remote control, a mobile AC adapter, foldout keyboard and VGA/Ethernet adapter combine for an ideal road package. There's a port replicator (docking station) that facilitates charging while connecting the PC to a variety of external devices such as a mouse, display, hard drive and/or optical drive.

The computer is based on an Intel Ultra Low Voltage Pentium M processor and Microsoft Windows XP Professional operating system.

This category of portable computers include other players in the market, like the OQO, Antelope and the Flipstart.

The VAIO U Ultra Portable notebook will be available next month at SonyStyle stores in the US for about US$2,000.
