sony_ux50_1.jpgHere’s hoping Sony has a trade-in or upgrade program for UX-180P owners! The UX-280P is now appearing on Sony’s site at a price of $1999.99. Perhaps this is the “business class” UX handheld since it’s featured on Sony’s Business Solutions site, and not the consumer oriented SonyStyle site. The form factor is the same: 4.5-inch 1024 x 600 touchscreen that slides up to reveal a keyboard, EDGE, WiFi and Bluetooth support. Apparently the difference (other than a digit in the product code) is under the hood. The UX-280P has a 40 GB hard drive, which is slightly larger than than the ancient model, and the RAM is now doubled to 1 GB. No change to the CPU, which is an Intel Core Solo at 1.2 GHz.

  1. Wow, this is great! More and more this is tempting me to pick up a LCD (21″) and the UX to use in a dock as a true desktop. I think with the boosted specs this device is deffinetly a laptop replacement!

  5. Fernando, that would have to be an 80 GB upgrade since it packs a 40 GB. :)

  7. Hey, what about me??? I received my UX90S only a month ago and now see that I could instead get a UX with 1GB RAM!!

    Don’t care about HD size increase as I already put a 60GB HD in mine….

    Anyone want to buy my upgraded UX90S with English keyboard, WinXP Pro, 60GB HD????
