Next version of Sony UX unveiled

18 Comments

Word of the next version of the Sony UX Micro PC comes not from the CES (at least not yet) but from Stuff Magazine.  Reader Jahan Kahn Rashid pointed me to the February issue of Stuff Magazine in the UK that features the Sony Vaio VGN-UX1XN that looks like the current model with some upgraded components.  According to Stuff Magazine the UX1XN will come with Vista, Intel Core Solo U1500 (1.33 GHz), 1 GB RAM, 32 GB Solid State Disk (SSD), CF, Memory Stick Duo, Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11g, USB 2.0, Firewire.  The new UX will have the same 4.5” screen running at 1024 x 600 and is reported to cost GBP 2,000.  I would think we’ll see this new Sony debut at the CES so I’ll keep an eye out for it.

A bit of googling confirms it is a european model, available for pre-sales (for dealers only I think) in europe.
GDP 2000 is really expensive. To put it into perspective in the UK Sony’s top end massive screen 1080p HD LCD’s cost less than this.

What! Sony releasing a handtop in the UK? Is this for real?!- they’ve never released a U series here before (I think)

Not likely as its sold in pounds and has the CF slot, that makes it the Euro version, not the US version. Thus far, all the US versions have lacked the CF slot and included integrated WWAN instead. I wouldn’t be surprised, though, to see a new UX-x80P series shown at CES, and I for one hope it will have UMTS/HSDPA instead of just EDGE support.
