I'll only be interested in this thing if it packs an ULV Ivy Bridge i5, 8GB DDR3, 5-inch+ sunlight viewable OLED/PixelQi based display @ 1280x800 (think Samsung Galaxy Note size and res), wireless induction charging, at least a 128GB SSD and min 7-hours of battery life and of course in roughly the same footprint as the UX...

The necessary tech is already old tech so I know it's doable, the only question really is cost.

My $0.02,

They definitely can do that, but the price will be above the sky.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking so I'm seeing an 80% likelihood that my next UMPC will be an android phablet and I know just the one and just the enhancement to make if I did decide to get it.

UPDATE: Either their webmasters have noticed the number of failed resolution calls in the server logs for sony.co.uk/thinkdo or they are preparing something for that page now. The link now redirects to the UK homepage where it once just gave a pseudo 404 error.

Update for the masses:

It seems Sony may actually have teased us with this system before during their April 2011 press conference in Japan when they announced the Vaio S.

Oooo.... Good catch, Dijenerate.. never saw that!

I'm just hoping that if / when this thing comes out of incubation, it is a viable product, and possible substitute for my venerable UX =)
