Ditch the Dreaded Data Plan


The $299 Sony Mylo COM-2, launching later this month, is a messaging phone without the most important part: the phone. While this odd gadget can surf the Web, send instant messages and make Skype calls from Wi-Fi hot spots, its inability to connect to...

Sharp, high-resolution screen. Web browser supports Flash. Makes Skype calls

Lacks cellular or Bluetooth wireless. No PIM or document reading solution available. Too little program memory ; Watch the Sony Mylo COM-2 Video Review

If it included a phone and municipal Wi-Fi blanketed the nation, the Sony Mylo COM-2 might have a chance. But as it is, you're better off with a device that can get online without relying only on Wi-Fi.

Sony mylo


This slick communicator offers speedy Wi-Fi Web access, music and video playback, and the ability to Skype on the go. But is that enough to win over the Sidekick set?

Gorgeous screen • Excellent user interface • Mobile Skype access • Can multitask with music playing

Tiny keyboard keys • No e-mail client • Hit-or-miss Web page formatting • Pricey

Sony Mylo (black)


Review: Remember a day when the most techie communication device a child could have was a walkie-talkie, or am I dating myself here? From preteens to college students, the younger generation is a growing and important segment for the consumer...

The Sony Mylo is Wi-Fi enabled (802.11b) and will search for available networks with a touch of one button. Once connected, the Mylo can help you instant-message friends and make VoIP calls, as it comes preloaded with Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, and...

Though the Sony Mylo offers many goodies, we think there are some important and noteworthy omissions. First, for such a youth-oriented device and one that Sony is touting as "all about fun," we're completely disappointed by the lack of support for and...

Sony mylo Review


It sports a small keyboard and Wi-Fi short-range wireless networking

Or if you have a son or daughter who is constantly tying up the family computer chatting with his friends, this could make a great gift

Sony mylo Review


Since its release last month, the Sony mylo personal communicator has often been compared to the T-Mobile Sidekick 3. Even though the mylo isn't a cell phone, the match-up is understandable: both units target the same demographic (18-22 year olds),...

Sony mylo Personal Communicator COM-1


Just when you thought that Sony was out of the handheld business in the US, they surprise you with the mylo in August 2006. Mylo, stands for my life online, and though it isn't as smart as the once very popular Sony Clie PDAs it's targeting at a...

Simply cool looking and feels great in hand. WiFi made easy with automatic search and connect. The keyboard makes it easy to IM and email. Great for playing music, viewing photos and videos thanks to the high quality screen and the expansion slot. Very...

Expensive for what you get and for the intended (youth) market. Limited built-in IM clients. No backlight on keyboard. No video converter software supplied. Only supports web-based email, no email client included

S320 plus MYLO sled


First I should say that the Sony CLIE S320 is a beautiful little Palm OS device with a screen and backlight that are absolutely stunning. The screen, despite its smaller size, outclasses the m500 easily, especially when the backlight becomes necessary....

For the CLIE user needing fast access to email and basic Web access on the go, it's a great service
