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.

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

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 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
