VAIO, Fujitsu, Toshiba PC triumvirate might happen in March

VAIO, Fujitsu, Toshiba PC triumvirate might happen in March

Partly thanks to the rise of smartphones and tablets, the once lucrative PC market has been losing its luster for almost half a decade now. These are desperate times for many PC makers, which call for desperate measures. Three Japanese companies have been reported to be close to showing their desperation, by joining forces to tackle the common foe of declining PC sales. That VAIO, Fujitsu, Toshiba merger might actually even happen before the end of March. However, that drop might not even make any ripple in the global PC market.

VAIO Phone Biz flaunts Windows 10 Mobile and Continuum

VAIO Phone Biz flaunts Windows 10 Mobile and Continuum

When Sony sold off its VAIO PC brand, it was presumed that the new VAIO company would busy itself with only PCs. Last year, however, the Japanese company unveiled its first ever smartphone, unsurprisingly an Android mobile device. Now it's unveiling its second, and, as the rumors have suggested, it is indeed running Windows 10 Mobile. VAIO Phone Biz, as it is called, is clearly designed for the business man or woman, but with less than "serious business" specs but with a lot of business-class looks.

VAIO Z, VAIO S “professional” notebooks arrive in the US

VAIO Z, VAIO S “professional” notebooks arrive in the US

If you haven't heard of a VAIO computer for a while, that's because the new Japanese company temporarily closed its doors to the international market soon after Sony sold off its PC business. October last year saw the first ever VAIO computer from the new company, the VAIO Z Canvas, arrive in the US. Now, VAIO is bringing not one but two, actually three, new notebooks, the VAIO Z flagship model and the VAIO S standard model, to the US as well, addressing what VAIO says are the pain points of business professionals: lots of battery and lots of ports.

First non-Sony VAIO to arrive in US this October

It was over a year ago that Sony spun off its VAIO PC brand, selling it to Japan Industrial Partners, who chose to limit their products to the Japanese market.

Sony tells VAIO owners to hold off on Windows 10

Most manufacturers are eager to jump on the Windows 10 bandwagon but one former PC maker doesn't seem to be in a rush. Although it has already sold off its VAIO PC business to a Japanese company, Sony is still required to support its existing models in the market. As part of that, it will, of course, need to roll out Windows 10 eventually. "Eventually" here being sometime in Fall apparently. Sony is warning users to stay away from Windows 10 at least for the time being.

VAIO surprisingly entering the smartphone market

VAIO surprisingly entering the smartphone market

It has been little over a year since Sony sold off its VAIO PC business to Japan Industrial Partners in an attempt to gird up its loins and focus on its core products (though it may repeat that process again soon). VAIO has recently been doing what we expect it to do: put out and sell laptops and tablets. So imagine the tech world's surprise when word got out that VAIO will actually be announcing a smartphone next month, either in competition or in cooperation with Sony.

VAIO makes a comeback with new VAIO Z, VAIO Z Canvas hybrids

Sony may have given up the fight, but VAIO, now a company in its own right, is still fighting the good fight. In fact, the now Japanese-owned PC maker has just unveiled two new members of its family, one of which could take on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. One reuses the VAIO Z name, but with a completely different design, while the other calls itself the VAIO Z Canvas. What both have in common, aside from some specs, is that they are both convertibles.

VAIO to offer smartphones starting next month

For years, Sony marketed laptops under the Vaio name with some success. Last summer Sony decided to spinoff the laptop branch of the company into a standalone brand simply called VAIO.
