Sony mylo Personal Communicator

Sony mylo Sony mylo Personal Communicator

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.

Okay first of all WIFI is Wireless Internet….you get a router this contains the hardware that has the WIFI…you plug it into your computer that has internet and then you have a WIFI connection. …Duh…yes places like starbucks have wireless internet but you can also get a router for your home!…starbucks and hotels have wireless internet for people to go and hang out and still have their access.

Ashley is right.. WIFI can be accessed from your nearest Starbucks or any other Shop that offers it. But also, consumers have the abillity to purchase a router that sends a wireless signal creating a WIFI access point via your own home. However, without WIFI, one can still access the offline features such as listening to music and watching videos. Quoted from the Sony Mylo FAQ: “This product is intended for use in U.S.A. For further details regarding the conditions of Sony’s limited warranty and the associated sofware end use licenses and associated service terms and conditions please refer to the limited warranty statement, software end use license agreement and associated service terms and conditions, provided in connection with the product.”
