If you think carrying around an attaché case full of gadgets embossed with “007” will get you Pussy Galore like a real British super spy, then Sony has a deal for you.
In anticipation of the upcoming James Bond film “Casino Royale” hitting theaters on Nov 17th, Sony is releasing The Bond Collection, featuring limited edition and numbered, black, 007-branded models of their VAIO portable PCs, Cyber-shot digital camera, Bluetooth GPS receiver, and Micro-Vault storage device. It all comes in a black attaché with a foam insert, (cut out for each piece just like real spies have!), a “Welcome Kit”, certificate of authenticity, and an 8×10 glossy of Dame Judi Dench’s M in lacy black lingerie. (I made that last part up.)
You can choose from the TX bundle, with its small laptop PC and display privacy filters, (so your enemies can’t see your top-secret plans for the Miller presentation next week), or go for the UX bundle, with the pocket-sized, fully functioning, micro PC with 4.5 inch screen, and the GPS receiver.
If the close-to-four-grand price tag is a little steep on the government salary you receive from Her Majesty you can purchase the digital camera and Micro Vault individually. Even top super spies have to start somewhere.
From $3200 for the bundles. Available November 10 exclusively online at sonystyle.com/casinoroyale, and at Sony Style stores nationwide. Preorder now.
