Jk_icon_100pix_4OK, the video file is huge but I wanted to capture the size and the spirit of the moment.  There is nothing quite like opening a new gadget for the first time and let’s face it, the Sony Vaio UX50 Micro PC is about as special as it gets.  With 1024×600 resolution playing on a screen of 4.5 inches you need the extra video to really show the device.  I had an invisible audience who wanted to remain out of the video but the coolness of the Sony drew him in as the video progressed.  All sorts of activity was going on in the background and the Treo wouldn’t stop ringing but that’s the way it is in Mobile Tech Manor.

This video is an overview of the UX50 device and I promise a full video review showing what this PC can do is forthcoming.  Enjoy the show and let me know what you think.

Special thanks to the folks at Dynamism for supplying this review unit.  Those guys are the best!

  2. Still watching the unwrapping! :D My only question….are you going to buy it?? :D You are SO lucky to be reviewing this unit. While this unit is nice, I have my heart set on a Samsung Q1 or maybe the ASUS unit once it comes out.

  3. I will watch the video but please make a “text” review. Video reviews can’t fill the need for “real” reviews.

    JK,

    Once again, you and KCT have keep the “first-looks” videos at a high bar! One thing that I realize about the Sony UX, it seems to appeal to the average consumer more so than the vertical business markets that the previous units have targeted. I’m very surprised at what you’ll get for your money. I can almost justify seeing someone spending the $1,799.00 for Sony VGN-UX180P!

    Excellent video. I’m looking forward to the other videos!

    P.S. Just a thought, as gork said, it may be a good idea to put it on you-tube for better distribution. Other people will also come to your site to find out more about mobile technology!

  7. This video makes me regret ordering my Q1 last night!

  8. Nah the Q1 is cool too! They look to be both the same size. Alas, I love the slide out keyboard. I wonder if OQO is going to make thier machine a UMPC with the fanning keyboard as well as the slide out….HMM!

  9. Good unboxing video, very informative on the dimension comparison with the Sony U. For the full review, please run the following benchmarks, so that us readers can better gauge the performance comparisons, rather than a subjective “This app loads in x seconds”.
