Sony’s new Mylo device is guaranteed to be the must-have device of the holiday season. In fact, you’d best buy a few early and hide ’em in the closet because no amount of frantic rushing around on Christmas eve will turn one up then.
The Mylo – “My Life Online” – is Sony’s idea of a “personal communicator”. It’s a fairly large handheld device that can browse the web, send and receive email and text messages and play videos and music. What’s more, it can be used like a phone to place and receive Skype VOIP calls.
The unit has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and a nice-sized colour LCD. Its memory can be upgraded with Sony’s MemoryStick media. The good news is that it isn’t too expensive. It’s likely going to retail for about $400 CDN.
Trust me on this one: the unit is going to be hot. Now if I can just get my hands on one to compose an objective review… any Sony PR folks out there reading?
