The Sony Vaio P netbook has undoubtedly been one of the highlight products of CES 2009, yet the seemingly high price point of £850 when it releases in the UK later this year has immediately angered many Sony fans this week.
The Euro Sony fans' anger is compounded by the fact that the Vaio P gets an $899 price tag in the US. Not to mention the fact that a Sony Vaio rep told an interviewer this week that Sony saw itself as being 'laser focused on the customer'.
For many Sony fans, when compared with the $899 US price tag, the UK pricing of the Vaio P seems to be a case of Sony Europe getting its maths a bit wrong. Not to mention a case of Sony not really seeming to focus that 'customer laser' so well on Europe.
