Sony Free Style Hybrid PC & Vaio Ultimate Mobile PC Offer Sneak Peak

April 28, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Almost confirming what has been a major rumor about Sony in mid- March, the company has allowed us a sneak peak at the ultra portable PCs they are planning to roll out soon. It was during the launch of Sony’s Honeycomb tablets S1 and S2 that the company gave a glimpse of their new PCs.

Among the two new devices, the Freestyle Hybrid PC comes with a hybrid nature, complete with a slide out physical keyboard as well as a touch-sensitive interface. The technical specs of these devices are however not known as yet. Meanwhile, the second device in the line up seems to be a Vaio, code-named Ultimate Mobile PC. The name, we guess, stems from its ultra portable thin form factor as well as connectivity options.

Since the company has preferred to stick on to the details of their Honeycomb tablets, they haven’t uttered even a word about the OS platforms or specs of the upcoming devices.

However, the rumors that erupted in March claimed that Sony was working on working on an ultra portable device powered by an NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor.

Packed with 1 GB of RAM, this machine is rumored to come with 16 GB memory. Weighing less than 2.2 pounds, the device in the rumor seems to be similar to the Free Style Hybrid PC. The presence of Goolge officials at the launch confirms the rumors that the Free style Hybrid PC may be running on Google’s Chrome OS.
