Sony's BlueTooth VAIO C1VRX Specs


With the original VAIO C1VN Sony became the first manufacturer to bring a Crusoe-based notebook to the retail market. With the VAIO C1VRX/K they are the first to present a Bluetooth enabled Crusoe TM5600 powered notebook!

The 667MHz C1VRX/K comes standard with a built-in Bluetooth chip capable of transmission speeds of about 7.5 MBPS over a distance of 10-100m (depending on location). For existing C1VN enthusiasts out there, be glad that Sony has finally paid attention to your cravings for something other then the lack-luster WinME operating system. The Bluetooth VAIO comes with Windows 2000, and a nice hefty 128MB or RAM. The new VAIO is expected to start shipping in Japan come March. Details concerning release in North America have not been set. The C1VRX is expected to retail for 250K Yen, and the C1VR for 170K Yen.

The housing and many of the on-board features remain the same as the previous Crusoe Picturebook sub-notebooks. With the smallest battery pack it weighs in at just under 1 kilo, and will last from 3 to 5 hours depending on how much the built in video camera is used typically.

Older VAIO C1VN sub-notebooks may soon be able to take advantage of BlueTooth technology as Sony demonstrated a Bluetooth memory stick at CES earlier this year. The prototype was apparently limited to a 10m transmission distance, making it impractical for anything more than a small office environment however.

In the typical situation the C1VRX would get connectivity from Sony's VAIO PCWA-A100A wireless connectivity gateway which is about the size of a hardcover book.
