Sony Expands 3D Strategy to Include Computers

Posted Fri Sep 10, 2010 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

A new laptop with impressive specs will be hitting shelves sometime in the near future.

Sony likes 3D. You may have noticed. The company has launched 3D Blu-ray players, 3D televisions, and even updated their four year old game system for 3D. It's kind of their thing, and they're not about to slow down.

In the living room, Sony is a dominant force when it comes to 3D hardware. It's outside that space that the company has been a bit weak, and that's about to change.

Following in the footsteps of companies like NEC, Fujitsu and Toshiba, Sony is going to be launching a series of 3D capable computers. It all starts with a new Sony Vaio that packs a Blu-ray player, a 1080p resolution, and a 240Hz response time.

The new Vaio will launch in Japan first, with a US release sure to follow. A price for the laptop has not yet been announced.
