Sony Vaio P to come with built-in WiMAX

Vaio_p_wimax

There's no timeframe publicly cited for this, but Sony Japan and UQ Communications are currently working on getting the Vaio P mini notebook outfitted with WiMAX. The UQ WiMAX service has been and will continue to be deployed in Japan only, so even if a release date were given in the news brief, most of us wouldn't be assessing our mobile needs and trying to get out of those Verizon Wireless contracts anyway.

But just in case you're keeping score, the Japanese Vaio Ps continue to leave their US counterparts in the dust with faster processors, additional colors, Windows XP, and other custom configurations. And now they're getting embedded WiMAX! Sure, there are more places in the US without WiMAX coverage than with it, but still. Americans like options too.
