Sony launches the new series of convertibles, the VAIO Flip, in India

Sony has introduced their new range of Windows 8 convertibles in India which bring a unique form factor design to the VAIO portfolio. Showcased at the CES earlier this month, the new VAIO Flip features a unique hinge that provide users with a variety of ways to use the device.

Available in 13-inch, 14-inch, and 15-inch sizes, the unique line design of the VAIO Flip makes it capable of flipping and converting between laptop, tablet, and viewer modes by flipping the display over the hinge.

While the laptop mode and the tablet mode are the obvious facets of a convertible, the VAIO Flip also offers a viewer mode where the display can be flipped over so that you can share the experience of watching a video with another person or give an instant presentation anytime.

The stylish and functional design is very impressive and the thin chassis with brushed aluminum finish gives it a very premium look. The VAIO Flip F13N weighs just 1.31 kg making it one of the lightest convertibles in the market. Not just in design, the VAIO Flip promises great performance with 4th Generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The F13N includes an SSD while the F14N and F15N pack in a hybrid drive.

Apart from a great device on offer, Sony packs in a lot of extras. For a limited time period, VAIO Flip customers will get MDR-XB910A premium headphones worth INR 12,990 complementary. Also, you can download unlimited songs for 3 months from a huge collection of more than 1.5 million songs from Sony Music - ‘Jive’ directly on your VAIO Flip.

Also, while the device comes with one year Accidental Damage Protection, till March 31, 2014, customers can buy 2 Years Extended Warranty at a discounted price of INR 999 only.

The new VAIO Flip F13N/F14N/F15N will be available next week, starting from INR 94,990. If you are not at a budget, and looking for a brilliantly designed convertible, Sony VAIO Flip is a great choice. A tad expensive, yes, but definitely drool worthy. What do you think?
