Sony’s WiFi Communicator

SE MyLoSony announced a new device called the Mylo (My Life on the Go), which is a handheld communications and media device roughly the same size as Sony’s PSP. Despite the similarities in size, the Mylo screen actually slides up to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard where users can use to type up instant messages, browse the web and type up emails.

The Mylo comes equipped with GoogleTalk as well as Yahoo! Messenger. Users can use Mylo’s built in Wi-Fi capabilities to link up to an Internet connection and make calls through their Skype user account. Mylo supports MPEG4 video playback and MP3, ATRAC and WMA support for audio. JPG image playback is supported. The unit has a 320×240 screen. Sony says that the Mylo will be available come September for $350.

The biggest drawback is that its not a mobile. So, No GSM network is supported. hmm! Why wouldn’t anyone get a Nokia E61, which supports same screen size, QWERTY keyboard, WiFi, VoIP, messenger, Internet browsing, Blackberry Connect/Edge network AND it is a GSM/CDMA phone, with same or even lesser price! I own one myself. Maybe it isn’t as good looking as Sony’s MyLo or Sony Ericsson’s M600 but its features outclass any other in the row.
