Sony’s 8-inch VAIO P Series gets GPS, Accelerometer, 3G and lots of color

Sony has refreshed  its 600g whelp, but not only with the colors of the rainbow, the P series gets faster CPU(Intel Atom Z540), an optical touchpad, built-in GPS and a new Digital Compass

It’s a interesting decision from Sony to integrate the optical touchpad and mouse buttons into the 8-inch LCD (1600×768) display, they’re located at either edge of the screen, the buttons are on the left and the  pad is on the right bezel. This is comfortable for operation with both thumbs while you’re holding the computer in two hands. Another new addition for Sony is the built-in accelerometer which allows you with just a “gentle shake to ‘flick’ through pictures or the pages of a PDF document, or navigate back and forth through your web browsing history.” The sensor also recognises when VAIO P Series is turned on its side, automatically ‘flipping’ the screen for easy reading of documents or web pages in portrait mode.
