Chinese site Shanzhaiben has posted some unboxing pictures of what appears at first glance to be a Sony Vaio netbook. I can’t find the direct link, because I don’t read Chinese and Shanzai.com, where I found the photos didn’t provide a link.
But here’s the thing. Sony actually launched a new netbook today called the Sony Vaio W. And while it bears a superficial resemblance to the product shown in the unboxing photos, the Vaio W clearly has a chiclet-style keyboard, (with an enormous “enter” key for some reason), a wide, textured touchpad, and an overall more polished design.
In other words, what you’re looking at here is a knockoff product with Sony branding. There’s a good chance that it’s a design little netbook. It has a 10.2 inch display, 1GB of RAM, and according to the sticker on the front, an Intel Atom processor. In other words, it’ll probably perform about the same as the Sony Vaio W, or most other netbooks for most tasks. But I’m betting it will hav ea lower resolution display than the Vaio W, which will ship with a 1366 x 768 pixel screen.
