Sony has introduced a new netbook, ccording to Engadget, the Sony representatives they spoke with called their netbook an “in-home” unit for the company, so 3G and GPS-packing models are unlikely. Sony’s netbook is expected to ship with Windows XP and a 3-cell battery (optional 6-cell upgrade), and will include software to stream content across DLNA-enabled devices. The Vaio W will be available in the US among other places mid-August, and its starting price is said to be around $500 - a bit steep if you ask me.
