Sony have revealed the Japan pricing for their latest product the Sony Vaio Duo 11 hybrid Ultrabook.

Didn’t you know, hybrid Ultrabooks are fairly significant game changers within the laptop industry which mate together the full functionality of a good old Ultrabook with all of the interactive benefits of a tablet computer. At this years ‘ IFA in Berlin a number of key players within the Ultrabook market (Samsung, Dell and Sony) unveiled hybrid Ultrabooks due for release either this October or a little bit later and on the note of that Sony offering the company have at last revealed Japan pricing for their highly anticipated product.

The Sony VAIO Duo 11 will go on sale in Japan for ¥150,000 upon launch which translates to £1,200 GBP or $1,930 USD if you live on the other side of the pond.

The Sony Vaio Duo 11 hybrid Ultrabook features a 11.6-inch full-HD 1080p touch-screen display, an array of connectivity ports including an Ethernet port, USB 3.0, Bluetooth, HDMI and VGA outputs for wiring up a screen or monitor and will ship with a 1.7GHz Core i5-3317U CPU. Storage wise the Duo 11 will pack a 128GB SSD as standard, and all in all the specifications of the machine are mighty impressive especially considering the machine measures just 17.85mm thin and weighs just 1.3kg.

The top selling feature of the Duo 11 is undoubtedly the form it carries along with the display it packs. With a resolution of 1920 x 1080, the 11.6-inch screen on the Duo 11 will be utterly amazing to look at with pin sharp icons and vibrant colour and depth with thanks  to Sony’s Mobile Bravia Engine.

The tablet / Ultrabook features a unique take on how a hybrid should perform; the Duo 11 changes from Ultrabook to tablet through a Surf Slider design which transforms a full-function traditional Ultrabook PC into tablet operating mode for on-the-go computing, allowing consumers to experience the very best of what Windows 8 has to offer.

We will have full UK pricing for the VAIO Duo 11 when Sony sees fit to announce it officially. If the Japan pricing is anything to go by though, plus inflation, a price tag of £1,299 sounds about right.

    A very intriguing design however I do not think it will do well in sales, it is just too complicated in the face of tablets.
