September 2, 2009 at 6:21 pm

Sony Vaio XSony has announced a new Vaio X ultra-portable device. It certainly looks like an aspirational device, weighing just 700g (1.5lbs) and measuring 13mm in thickness. It has a chiclet keyboard and whilst specifications are thin on the ground, we know that it will be powered by an Intel Atom processor.

The lightweight chassis is down to the carbon fibre shell and Sony claim that the battery “will set the new standard for stamina.” It will also have built-in 3G support. The official specifications will be announced in October and it will hit retail a week after the Windows 7 launch. It won’t come cheap though, according to a Sony rep this will cost “below $2,000”.
