Sony unveiled the Duo 13 alongside its new Pro and Fit laptops on Wednesday, listing it as a key step in its 2013 business market push.
The Duo aims to fix a number of the flaws seen on the Japanese giant's first Windows 8 convertible, the Duo 11. Chief among these were the device's poor battery life – it only lasted for five hours off one charge – a delicate-feeling hinge and the absence of a place to dock its stylus.
The Duo 13 also features upgraded hardware specifications featuring an Intel Core i7 chip, 8GB RAM, up to 512GB solid-state storage and a reasonable HD 1920x1080 pixel resolution display. As an added boon to busiess users the Duo 13 will feature an 8MP rear camera and Sony's custom CamScanner app. The app will suit business users, letting them use the rear camera to scan written documents to turn into text files.
The Duo is set for release later this year, although there is currently no word on its exact price. Check back with V3 later for a full review of the Sony Vaio Duo.
