Sony has come out with its VAIO P, the world’s lightest 8-inch netbook at just 1.4 pounds. It is a Vista running netbook, something we don’t see quite that frequently. It’s powered by a 1.33GHz Intel processor and comes with 1,600 x 768 resolution LED-backlit XBRITE-ECO LCD display, 2GB RAM, up to 60GB hard drive + available 128GB SSD, 802.11n WiFi, 3G WWAN, Bluetooth, battery that provides four hours working (can offer up to eight hours with the optional high-capacity cell) and a GPS module. Color options include garnet red, emerald green, onyx black, crystal white and classic black hues.
Did you think Sony’s new PSP 3000 wasn’t hackable? Think again, Datel has released a gadget, well a battery actually called the Lite Blue Tool. It’s essentially a smart battery that clones Sony lab equipment to put the PSP 2000 and PSP 3000 into Service Mode. From this mode, users are approaching the PSP with the access of a Sony engineer and can load old, cracked firmware that’s open to run homebrew applications and softwares. You can buy the Lite Blue Tool at various places online such as here. But there’s always an alternative of getting it on eBay, etc…
This is a converted vintage PlayStation created by Max Maruszewski. It’s fully functional and complete with controller ports. Though Lego is our favourit-est thing in the world, the things that it enables us to create sometimes seems abit too delicate. You can click on the below gallery to have a complete view at the different angles. Overall, I would say it was put together extremely well, an excellent way to show your friends that you don’t have to have the latest console to be cool!
Out of all the latest Sony Ericsson concept phones (unofficial by the way) featured below, the P905 has to be my favourite, not just because it is the only one out of the lot that has Google Android but just look at it! J. Havarlant from Sony-Ericsson-CZ is the designer behind the sexy Sony Ericsson concept phones below. His slew of Sony Ericsson concept designs for this Christmas includes some exciting additions to the T, P and W series.
The T903 Rugya. This one is a sleek slider with red highlights. It sports a 8.1- megapixel camera and is inspired by the gorgeous Rugya car. The P912 boasts of a single large screen with only two buttons on the face. What makes the touchscreen P905 very interesting is that it proposes an Android platform, looks like a smooth iPhone but hosts a side-slider QWERTY keyboard.
Besides a huge touchscreen, there is nothing much to write about the SE P902 Retro. However the musically inclined will appreciate the W905, which is a Walkman phone. Sporting a large Slider screen, it also has a 5.0-megapixel camera and quick easy-access buttons on the side.
