Sony Mylo 2 review: Sony Mylo 2


The Sony Mylo is back (remember that little Wi-Fi messaging device?), and it's looking a bit more mature and wiser after learning some lessons the first go-round. Available for $299 (in black or white ), the Sony Mylo Communicator 2 has a new look and...

The Sony Mylo Communicator 2 has a more refined design and now includes a 1.3-megapixel camera, AIM integration, widget support, and direct downloads/uploads.

The Mylo COM2 relies only on a Wi-Fi connection; there is no cellular or Bluetooth technology. The handheld can be sluggish, and the camera doesn't record video at this time.

The Sony Mylo Communicator 2 is a huge improvement over its predecessor, but the Wi-Fi handheld will have a hard time competing with the similarly priced and better featured iPhones, Sidekicks, and Helio Oceans of the cellular world.

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 2 – The Definitive Review


Photo galleries: exterior, applications, web, photos samples With the “Put the fun of a PC in your pocket” tag line, [...]

ithout paying hundreds of dollars in subscription pr year (for a slower network). The idea of cutting a deal with Wayport is excellent, because accessibility is WiFi's weak point.

Review: Web browsing on Sony mylo 2 (COM-2)


Though not marketed as its primary feature, web browsing on the new mylo 2 (COM-2) personal communicator is described by Sony as being "closer to the internet experience on a PC." This lofty claim is backed by the device's NetFront browser, Adobe Flash...

Sony Mylo 2 review


The purported images of the Mylo 2 were legitimate, but you could have figured it out for yourselves. It's much larger than the first gen Mylo and while it's features are above and beyond that of the its predecessor, one has to wonder what Sony was on...

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's Mylo: Mighty Weak


It lacks reliable WiFi connectivity and picture or video taking. For the price, this multifunctional mobile phone should offer more than great media playback.

On any given day I carry around a cell phone, wallet, iPod, and keys. With only so much pant-pocket room, I'm pretty choosy about anything I'll lug around in addition to these essentials. I am considering adding a device that will help me stay...
