Sony’s mystery Vaio appears- what is it?

sony-vaio1We first caught wind of a mystery Sony “netbook” device recently and speculation mounted as to what it could be.  Sony Japan has put up a promo video showing a woman removing this  “Vaio new mobile” from a handbag.

What makes this mystery device so unusual is the apparent size and form.  It’s hard to tell much for certain but the device looks to be less than an inch thick and the other dimensions are downright strange.

From the video this new Vaio mobile looks to be a foot wide but less than six inches deep.  This would indicate the screen does not fill up the whole lid as the aspect ratio would be very strange.  So we’re just going to have to continue wondering what Sony has up their sleeve, or in their handbag.
