Sony VAIO UX1XN getting (even) cheaper

October 18, 2007

Back in August I mentioned how much cheaper the Sony VAIO UX1XN was getting.

When the Sony VAIO UX1XN was released in the UK it commanded a £2,000 price tag. Last month (July) I noticed my local Sony Centre had reduced the price to £1,600. Still expensive, but 20% off is quite a reduction. On Amazon now you can get the UX1XN for just £1,199 which considering the features of the UX1XN (the cameras, flash hdd) makes the UX1XN seem like a reasonable proposition.

Well there has been another price drop.

Sony are now selling the UX1XN for £999, whilst Amazon (through a third party) have it for £899. This is now cheaper than the Samsung Q1 Ultra (the one with the 32GB SSD Hard Drive).

I suspect there will be new UX VAIO soon, but when I don’t know, in the meantime the UX1XN is now getting to be reasonable value for money.

I do like the UX1XN (well apart from Vista blue screening on my way too often), I find it a very neat useful device at meetings and conferences.

SDK for iPod touch too

October 18, 2007

Yesterday I mentioned that Apple were going to allow third party applications for the iPhone. What is nice is that they are also going to allow developers using their software developers kit (SDK) to create applications for the iPod touch as well.

Apple in their press release said:

P.S.: The SDK will also allow developers to create applications for iPod touch.

Excellent, this means that developers will be able to create applications for the iPhone and the iPod touch.

Thanks Gary.
