Does "VAIO " mean anything in Japanese, i.e. Sony VAIO?


  1. vikingsrose says:

    VAIO, an acronym for Video Audio Integrated Operation, is a sub-brand for many of Sony’s computer products. The branding was created to distinguish items that encompassed the use of consumer audio and video, as well as being conventional computing products. One example of this was the Sony VAIO W Series personal computer, which functioned as a regular PC and a miniature entertainment center. Although Sony made computers in the 1980s for the Japanese market only, Sony withdrew from the computer business around the turn of the decade. Sony’s re-entry to the computer market, this time globally, under the new VAIO brand, started in 1996 with the PCV series of desktops. The VAIO logo also represents the integration of analog and digital technology. The ‘VA’ represents an analog wave and the ‘IO’ represents digital binary code.

  2. I guess nothing,just like the way they name their cartoons.

    No. The Japanese language does not have the "V" sound.
