FCC Approves the Vaio UX


While the FCC shows that they have approved a Sony handheld device with model number PCG-1J1L, we believe that this is the Sony Vaio UX180P. PCG-1J1L is obviously a temporary model number since nowhere in all the
FCC documents mentioned ”Vaio” when the image found in one of the documents clearly has a Vaio brand at the back (”aio” visible) .

It is also interesting to note that Sony requested confidentiality of the device from the FCC on March 24, 2006, only a few days after the official announcement of the UMPC. This might mean that Sony was already hard at work designing their Micro PC probably way before the UMPC concept
was even thought of.

Check out the image after the jump which compares the FCC pic with the Vaio UX. We have added arrows to show how the PCG-1J1L is exactly that of the Vaio UX180P (VGN-UX180P).

    As soon as I saw PCG, I thought PEG for Personal Entertainment OrGanizer which was the nickname of the CLIEs. Could these be Person Computer OrGanizers or maybe even Personal Computer OriGami?

    Same here. :) It must stand for ‘Computer’. With VGN however, it might be “Vaio” something.

    I think VGN stands for Vaio OrGanizer Notebook. Might not. But thats the closest to making sense.

    Well, they pulled “Clie” from french and Sony’s japanese based with a strong foot hold in pretty much every major country, so I’d say that it could be anything.

    Am I the only one who sees the “DVT” on the inside of the battery compartment in this picture? Yes, this might be the same casing as the VGN-UX50, VGN-UX90 and VGN-180P but it could be an update to Sony’s new UMPC. Is it a coincidence that one of Sony’s new ultraportable TX series noteboook (TX72) comes with a tv tuner?
