Sony preparing a WWAN-equiped VAIO? The FCC says yes

It looks like Sony is about to enter the netbook market. Of course, there are little details so far, but from the looks of the FCC image, it appears that Sony is preparing a small WWAN-equipped VAIO. The image shows off what appears to be a netbook that measures in at 9.5 x 4.5-inches, but carries an official description of “notebook PC.” Perhaps we can assume that description is just because of the fact that Sony does not like the netbook market. Call it what you want, but a “netbook,” “notebook,” or even a “laptop,” the size is what will determine the correct market.

The few details that were listed, have this as model numbers PCG-1P1L and PCG-1P2L. Additionally, they are shown to feature Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth as well as EVDO and HSPA. So far, there is not any information regarding a display size, operating system or other features. The one drawback that I can see here is that, assuming this is truly a VAIO netbook, the price will most likely not be at the same level as other netbooks.
