Sony took the wraps off its latest VAIO – the P Series Lifestyle PC and revealed a seriously tiny laptop that will set stylemongers salivating.

About the size of a business envelope and roughly as thin as a cell phone, the VAIO Lifestyle PC weighs just 1.4 pounds (that’s .6 of a kilo) and is small enough to slip into a jacket pocket or handbag without sacrificing on features.

“The VAIO P Series Lifestyle PC is your portal to the world, delivering entertainment and computing in a head-turning device that’s small enough to put in your pocket,” said Mike Abary, senior vice president of VAIO product marketing at Sony Electronics. “Designed for the fashionista in all of us, it’s the ideal companion.”

The model incorporates a high-resolution, 1600 x 768, LED backlit 8-inch ultra-wide display; Sony’s XBRITE-ECO™ LCD technology; a keyboard that extends to the perimeters of the chassis maximizing the typing area. It also comes equipped with built-in wireless WAN 3G Mobile Broadband, 802.11n wi-fi and Bluetooth technologies. Users can toggle among various wireless options for the most efficient connection – Wi-Fi for working at a coffee shop; Bluetooth for peripherals; and Mobile Broadband service on the Verizon Wireless nationwide network when traveling outside the reach of hotspots (subscription required).

The unit features up to four hours of battery life with the included standard capacity battery and eight hours with the large capacity battery (sold separate).

It also incorporates real-time GPS functionality, so you’ll never get lost on the way to that coffee shop or bar again…

The VAIO P SERIES comes with the Windows Vista® operating system,and is expected to sell for US $900.
