San Diego -- Sony Electronics today introduced the VAIO UX Micro PC, placing full-size computer performance in a pocket-sized package.

Weighing just over a pound, the new PC has a Microsoft XP Professional operating system and an Intel Core(TM) Solo Ultra Low Voltage CPU for fast processing and long battery life.

The UX model also features a 4.5-inch wide SVGA screen with XBRITE(TM) technology for viewing that slides up to expose an integrated keyboard. This allows you to access familiar applications easily in the same way you would on a full-sized computer.

The pocket-sized PC also comes equipped with a stylus and Sony's VAIO touch launcher for quick access to functions frequently used such as Internet access, e-mail, various computer applications, games and music. Just push the launcher button located on the side of the unit.

Keeping travelers connected, the new computer incorporates Sony's SmartWi(TM) technology, so you can toggle between wireless WWAN, LAN and Bluetooth technology for convenient access to the Internet and e-mail.

WLAN is also available for Wi-Fi connections at home, office or hotspots; Bluetooth technology for peripherals; or WWAN for access to Cingular's nationwide EDGE network, which allows you to connect to the Internet virtually anywhere there is cellular coverage.

The UX model also incorporates two built-in cameras -- one in front for VoIP communication for on-the-go video conferencing and another located on the back for taking photos. A VGA adapter is included to connect the PC to a projector, making it easy to share presentations and spreadsheets with a group.

Security is also a top priority. The VAIO UX PC comes equipped with an integrated biometrics fingerprint sensor, so you do not have to remember passwords. Incorporated G-Sensor(TM) shock protection has been added to protect the unit's hard drive and reduces the risk of data loss should it be dropped.

For added convenience, a docking station with three 2.0 USB ports, Ethernet, VGA, iLink IEEE-1394 interface and an AV output comes with the unit, making it easy to connect to peripherals like a full-sized keyboard, display and speakers when back in the office or at home.

The VAIO UX Micro PC will be available in July for about $1,800 and can be purchased online at, at Sony Style stores or at select retailers around the country.
