Despite what that excessively veined hand in the image seems to suggest, the message in this Sony Vaio P ad isn't that the mini notebook is impervious to destruction by crushing or squeezing.
No, the news here is what's written in that little white circle on the right: WiMAX. A little more than a month after we first learned that Sony Japan and UQ Communications were prepping a WiMAX-enabled Vaio P, the team has completed their work and are making the integrated 4G mobile broadband modem available for 10,000 yen (~$106) in customized corporate models and Vaio Owner Made configurations running Windows Vista. Preorders appear to begin on July 27th, with the WiMAX-ed Ps expected to be released in Japan on the 30th.
