Photographs, along with the instruction manual the device appeared on the network because of an agreement they should be secret between the FCC (the Commission) and Sony. There are, however, date back until September last year, which is quite significant questions whether any plans for Sony, which to launch in the near (or any) of the future process of mass production and sale of Chromebook, and above all because they were not, in practice such hit, as expected.
The device, referred to in documents as the Sony VAIO FCC VCC111, was to be fully equipped with the 11.6-inch display, Chrome OS-specific hotkeys, SSD, and also in support for USB 2.0 module, HDMI and SD.
This could be an Nvidia Tegra 2 T25 ARM based processor, which would be interesting as it would make for the first Chromebook to run on a non-Intel based processor.
Sony VAIO Chromebook Specs, question mark indicates assumed or unsure:
Processor: Nvidia Tegra 250 T25 1.2GHz ARM based processor (?)
Screen: 11.6” diagonal, produced by Samsung
OS: Chrome OS
Memory: 2GB RAM (?)
Ports: two USB 2.0, SD card reader, headphone port, microphone port, HDMI
Wireless: 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth
Storage: SSD – 16GB (?)
Pricing on Chromebooks generally start around $299 – $400 range, so we’d expect this Sony to be about the same, based on pictures there doesn’t appear to be anything extra special Sony has done to warrant a higher price.
