Admittedly “letting the pioneers in the market make the mistakes”, Sony has yet to develop a laptop that fits the “netbook” criteria. The times may be a changin’ as a photo of a netbook sized Sony Vaio laptop have appeared on the FCC. The notebook, sporting the model numbers PCG-1P1L and PCG-1P2L, is guesstimated to be about 9.5 x 4.5 inches, placing it directly in between the Dell Inspiron Mini 9 (9.13 x 6.7) and the HP Mini 1000 (10.3 x 6.56). The FCC documents also reveal test results for Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and both EV-DO and HSPA data courtesy of Qualcomm’s Gobi chipset. Lastly, a close look at the FCC label indicates that these notebooks/netbooks will run some flavor of Windows. No specs on the processor or other internal components but the prospect of a future netbook-style Sony Vaio looks promising.
