The VAIO Pro notebooks will be available in Singapore first. Sony expects to start retailing these ultra portable Ultrabooks at the end of June.

And now, barely a week after Computex, Sony just announced during that the upcoming notebooks will be available in Singapore very soon. In fact, the Sony VAIO Pro 11 and 13-inch notebooks will be in stores by the end of June 2013.

Sony took the opportunity to remind us about the effort and dedication that went into creating the new products. They also highlighted some of the key technologies that users can expect to see in the new devices.

 With One-touch listening that's included in all of the Summer 2013 VAIO models, users can seamlessly transfer music playing on their VAIO to a wide variety of NFC compatible devices, ensuring that they continue enjoying the music right where they left off.

The stunning display on the VAIO notebooks are made with technology from Sony's television businesses.

Also incorporated is the TRILUMINOS Display for mobile that allows users access to a wide palette of rich, natural colors. Combined with a Full HD display and Sony's super resolution technology, X-Reality for mobile, the notebooks also feature the audio enhancing ClearAudio+ mode to offer audio clarity and presence.

The Sony VAIO Duo 13 requires only a single touch to open up, thanks to its well-designed spring-loaded hinge. Unfortunately, you'd have to wait until July before you can get your hands on one.
