New Sony UX UMPCs with 64 bit – Sony UX72, Sony UX92 and Sony UX490

According to Akihabara News Sony has release much awaited new models of the Sony UX. I got the UX90S J and it is one of my favourite gadgets. But the new models are: UX72, UX92S and UX92NS. The new models have the new 64-bit Core Solo chips on board (U2200 1.2 GHz and U2100 1.06 GHz) and the smallest model will feature the Celeron M523 (32 bit).

Unfortunately no new keyboard it seems. So i'll keep my old trusted 90S...

A new option of us who loves SSD drives – the UX can now be delivered with the 48GB or 64GB SSD drive. J

One of the US versions (that of course have different model numbers) will be called 490NC – specs below: Price with B&H Photo after rebates: US$ 2500,- and seems like another kit (with Intro Kit?) will be available for about $3100

Any info on the WWAN? Does it get faster HSDPA/EVDO or the same old EDGE?
