Looks like when Sony said “We have to participateâ€”, they weren’t kidding, and already had a netbook in the works.
There has been a recent FCC filing for Sony in the US, with a couple of models listed, as well a size and some specifications, listed for what looks to be Sony’s entry into the netbook market. Engadget estimates the size to be around 9.5″ x 4.5″ which really pushes an 8.9″ display (the dimensions seem off for an 8.9″ display, a 7-inch display would be more appropriate).
Going by the information in the confident requests to the FCC, more information won’t be available until the first part of January 2009 (Jan. 8 to be precise). At that time, the FCC will publish photos and the user manual.
Update: It’s the P-Series
