speed compatible. *4 Does not support MagicGate copyright protection technology. *5 MagicGate copyright protection technology cannot be applied to Memory Stick PRO. *6 Deploying IEEE 802.11b
and IEEE 802.11g products on the same wireless network may reduce the communication speed due to radio interference. Taking this into consideration, the IEEE 802.11g products are designed to
reduce the communication speed to ensure communication with IEEE 802.11b products. When the communication speed is not as fast as expected, changing the wireless channel on the access point
may increase the communication speed. *7 The fast wireless LAN technology, “Super G,” developed by Atheros Communications, Inc. enables faster wireless communications among compatible devices.

software in use. In addition, communication may be cut off depending on the radio conditions. *9 Estimated battery life. When the power-saving mode is on. Actual battery life may vary with different
