Sony VAIO® Flip Sweepstakes

by Kathleen 11/04/2013, in Contact the Blog

This week, we are in cahoots with two-time Olympian Gabby Douglas. She’ll be tumbling and flipping around the streets of New York to spread the word about our new VAIO | Flip PC.

(If you’re in the NYC area, check out this link for all the details.)

The PC instantly goes from laptop, to tablet, to viewer mode with a simple flip so you can watch movies, share your screen, or use it like a tablet with a stand.
