Rumor: Sony to Release S360
According to the online retailer J&R, Sony has discontinued the S320 and will soon be replacing it with the PEG-S360, which will have 16 MB of RAM instead of the S320's 8 MB. It will cost $200, which is the price the S320 was released at, though it has since been dropped to $170. Of course, the S360 will run some version of OS 4, presumably 4.1. J&R doesn't know when it will have the S360 in stock; it's just telling its customers who try to order it that it'll be in very soon. It is already taking pre-orders for the new model.
Rumors have been circulating that the S320 had been discontinued since Sony started listing it on their webstore as "sold out". The only times in the past Sony has allowed this to happen have been when it was about to discontinue a product.
There had been speculation that the S320 would be replaced with a member of Sony's new T line; however, naming it the S360 is a very strong indication that this will essentially be the S320 with an updated OS and more RAM.
The N610C is also being listed as "sold out" at SonyStyle. It is expected to be replaced by a U.S. version of the T600C in the near future.
