Sony Announces PEG-T650C in Japan
Sony Japan has announced the Clie PEG-T650C. The T650C is essentially an updated version of the T600C and includes an MP3/ATRAC3 player. It uses a slightly improved screen but does not have virtual Graffiti and sports the 66 Mhz Dragonball SuperVZ processor.
T650C is quite similar to the T600C/T615C/T625C. Its casing is the same size, it uses the same buttons, has the same HotSync connector, etc.
The T650C uses the same screen type as the NR series, though it isn't the same size. This means it is better at displaying colors than the T615C is.
According to sources, this handheld will be available in Japan around June 8. There is no word yet on when or if it will be available anywhere else. This isn't unusual as Sony almost always introduces its handhelds in its home country first. We can reasonably assume that it will replace the T615C/T625C models available in other countries.
It costs about 39,800 Yen, which is about $320 US. However, this probably won't be the cost when it is introduced in the United States. For example, the NR70 sells for 49,800 Yen, or $385. In the U.S. it costs $500.
A new accessory (PEGA-KB20), a QWERTY T-Series mini keyboard was also announced. More pictures and a review in Japanese can be found here.
Thanks to the many people that sent in tips, of which Eugene was the first -Ryan
