I was checking out the SonyStyle site to see if they are listing any cool new accessories for the Sony U series and found a couple that look really nice.
The first accessory is a carrying case that looks to be the perfect size to carry the U along with any accessories you need to take along in your travels. The case looks really professional and the dimensions show it to be a decent size for the U: 13.5"W x 11"H x 3.25" D (expandable to 5.25"). The PCGA-CCB2 is reasonably priced (for Sony) at $49.99 and is made of nylon making it very light.
The second accessory is the Sony VAIO® USB Visual Communication Camera (PCGA-UVC11A) which is a fancy name for a web cam. This camera attaches to any notebook computer and gives easy access to all web cam functions. This is a perfect way to stay in touch with the family using video chat while on the road. The camera provides VGA (640×480) images and runs off the USB port on the U. The camera is $89.99 and of course matches the U perfectly.
It is also reported that Sony will be selling a Recovery CD with all the U drivers and applications for $30 but it has not appeared on the US SonyStyle site yet.
