According to a new report from Sony Insider Sony is preparing to launch an new Laptop pre-installed with Chrome OS as well as a “VAIO Hybrid PC” that defies any sort of meaningful explanation in just three words. This is addition to what it has already to make surprise, Sony is also believed to release PlayStation Tablet, dual-screen clamshell and sliding PC.
The Chrome OS device is reportedly designed the same way the Google Cr-48 with roughly same dimension and keyboard but relatively smaller 11.6 inch screen, the device is also expected to feature following
- Nvidia Tegra 2 (250) platform
- 11.6″ (1366×768) LCD display
- 1 GB of Memory
- 16 GB eMMC (electronic multimedia card)
- Ultra-low power GeForce GPU
- Wireless WAN
- Wide Keyboard (18mm) will be pretty similar to the Google Chrome Cr-48 laptop keyboard
- Dimensions: less than an inch thick at around 19.9 mm; width is at 11.7″ (298 mm) and it is 21.5 cm (8.46″) deep
- It should weigh around 2.2 lb (or 1kg)
- 8 hour battery life
Whereas Sony VAIO Hybrid PC is expected to features Intel’s Light Peak technology that is now known as Thunderbolt, Wireless Display, Core i7 Processor, HDMI output with 3D support and an internal SSD. The Battery is expected to last for 8 to 16.5 hours and weigh around 1013 kg.
Other feature you could expect with new Sony VAIO Hybrid is a Blue-ray burner, external graphics (by AMD) for gaming and multimedia.
