The new teaser from Indian online retailer Flipkart means the revival of the once well-known brand of laptops. In 2014, Sony sold its Vaio laptop business. As I personally remember, Sony Vaio laptops had too much bloatware and were much more expensive than their competitors.
Following a long break from the brand, Flipkart Teaser simply reads “lighter than your past.” Make fun of the brand’s return to retail. The teaser is a play on laptops when Vaio stopped making laptops. Ultra-portable at the time was slow and expensive, but Windows notebooks became big and hot.
In January, the brand will officially unveil it’s first AMD model, along with another model specially designed for modern offices, and launched it on one of the major e-commerce portals, Flipkart. And then expand to other major retail channels. – Seema Bhatnagar, South Asia Regional Business Director, RSD, Nexst Go.
A new agreement with Hong Kong-based company NexstGo gives the company the right to sell, sell and service Vaio laptops in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Macau, the Middle East and India.
The last time I heard about Vaio was in 2017 when the Vaio Phone A came out, but it was very economical and common, and I didn’t get the chance to notice it.
