Sony announced yesterday the upcoming release of its mylo personal communicator. Combining the best features of just about every device out there, the mylo features Wi-Fi, QWERTY slide-out keyboard, VoIP, instant messaging, built-in microphone, and removable li-ion battery. The unit ships with a paltry 1GB of flash memory, but a Memory Stick PRO Duo expansion slot helps to soften that blow.
A 2.4-inch QVGA screen (320 x 240) offers 65K colors for organizing photos (JPG/PNG/BMP), watching videos (MPEG-4 SP), and listening to music (MP3/ATRAC/WMA). Measuring 4.8 x 2.8 x 0.94 inches, the 5.3-ounce mylo can keep your tunes spinning for up to an astounding 45 hours on a single charge! Battery life for other applications is also impressive: 7 hours for web browsing and 3.5 hours for VoIP.
The mylo comes in black or white and will be available next month for $350.
