SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2009

After spending most of Friday curled in a ball twitching and drooling after losing power and Internet access for almost 12 hours, I am glad to be back online and in the 21st century again. Just in time to hunker down and dose myself with a nice helping of week in review for your perusal. Chris reviewed the GSM Palm Pre and found the camera wasn't as good as some of its peers but found plenty to like in the end. The webOS operating system stands apart from rival OS'. Buffalo announced the HD-HU3 USB 3.0 drive and controller that will be shipping in Japan this month. The drive isn’t even that expensive; I hope it comes to America too.

Sony VAIO W: mainstream 10-inch netbook, typical Sony price [Updated]

Sony VAIO W: mainstream 10-inch netbook, typical Sony price [Updated]

Sony's VAIO P was never the netbook many people expected it to be - its unusual screen aspect, stand-out form-factor and high sticker price meant it never quite competed with the regular Atom N270 netbook crowd - so the company is back with a far more mainstream alternative.  The Sony VAIO W is an "internet book" with a 10.1-inch screen and Intel's typical N270 1.6GHz processor.

Update: It's official for the US; more details after the cut
