“Coming Soon” – VAIO New Ultra Mobile from Sony

SonyStyle in Japan is teasing a new Sony VAIO ultramobile. No details on the device, but they’ve got a coupon signup for SonyStyle users (SonyStylists?) that seems to offer better deals to higher ranking members. Oh, and they’ve showing off a new paperclip-looking icon.

CrunchGear speculates that it’s another netbook, which are called “ultramobiles” in Japan. Engadget backs that up with a tip that it will be an orange VAIO P and the “paperclip” represents the closed view from the side. Pity as I was hoping it represented a slate view from the side.
