We've had a lust affair with the Flybook line of ultra-portables ever since we spotted the V33i model last year. Today, Dialogue announced that they'll be offering the Flybook V33i (pictured) to Japan with the option for built-in WWAN for HSDPA/UMTS/EDGE/GPRS/GPS connectivity. Oh never mind that Japan hasn't even launched their HSDPA service yet, this chicken has hatched and set to roll on July 4th for ¥268,800 (about $2,336). Just enough time for local carriers to meet their most aggressive launch targets. Oh, and remember that "airline friendly" Flybook VM we saw at Computex? Well, the little Core Duo, swing-arm pup will be turned out in Japan on June 20th for ¥216,000, or about $1,877 hard cash. VM action pics after the break.
