It looks like Sony has bumped up their shipping time for some US customers for the new 8″ Sony VAIO P, at least unofficially.
Originally, the VAIO P series was showing a shipping date of February 3, 2009. Engagdet has an article up showing that some customers have began receiving shipping notices – one Engadget reader has gotten a notice that their VGNP530H/Q shipped yesterday. The VGN-P530H/Q is Onyx Black, and comes with 60GB HDD, 1.33GHz, Vista Home Basic, for $899.99.
A quick check of the Sony Style Store shows that they are still listing February 3, 2009 as the shipping date.
