Sony Introduces Sony Vaio With Built-in CDMA EV-DO Rev A
Sony Electronics will soon be offering the first ultra-portable computers to include integrated broadband-capable WAN (wide area network) technology, in partnership with Sprint.

The new VAIO VGN-TXN10 Series notebooks can connect to the Sprint CDMA EV-DO network for wireless, broadband-speed for downloading e-mail and accessing the Internet and large data files. Later this year, Sprint expects to upgrade its network in select markets with EV-DO Revision A (Rev. A) technology so customers will experience broadband upload speeds as well where and when the Rev. A network is deployed.

The TX notebooks incorporate Sony’s SmartWi technology to seamlessly integrate wireless WAN, 802.11 b/g, wireless LAN and Bluetooth technologies. Users can toggle among these wireless options for the most efficient connection – LAN for home and office; Bluetooth for peripherals; and wireless WAN for access to mobile data service when traveling outside the reach of hotspots.

VAIO TX notebook users should expect to benefit from average download speeds of 450 to 800 Kbps (kilobits per second) and upload speeds of 300 to 400 Kbps in the markets where EV-DO Revision A network improvements will be rolled out.

With a carbon fiber chassis, the VAIO TX notebooks weigh just 2.8-pounds and less than one-inch thin. The notebooks pack an ultra-low voltage Intel Core Solo processor and standard battery life of between five to 11 hours. The notebooks are Windows Vista capable and Windows Vista Premium ready.

The new TX units are also equipped with a fingerprint sensor and G-Sensor shock hard-drive protection to reduce the risk of hard drive damage from accidental falls or run-ins.

The new notebooks come with an 11.1-inch widescreen display, DVD+R double layer/DVD+RW drive and Sony’s Instant Mode, so users can watch movies or listen to music without having to boot up the machine.

Sony VAIO VGN-TXN10 Series notebooks, with mobile broadband capability, will be available in late September, starting at about US$2,300 in charcoal, platinum, sienna and slate blue.
