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.

Sony Mylo 2 ( black)

 

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.

Sony Com-2 Mylo Communicator: The Next Generation

 

Sony ironed out a lot of the kinks from the original mylo, but it still has a ways to go.

Improved touchscreen ; Widget-based desktop ; Reasonably fast Wi-Fi access

Clunky keyboard ; Poor multitasker ; Limited wireless options ; A little chunky

Sony mylo Personal Communicator COM-2 Review

 

This can access the Web on its WVGA screen and make free Skype phone calls over Wi-Fi, and it also includes some additional features, like a built-in camera

I did come away impressed with the screen, excellent battery life, and wealth of installed applications. It's clear that Sony, Apple, and Nokia are on in same mind frame towards these advanced personal devices. The mylo COM-2 seems to be getting that...

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...

Review: Sony mylo 2 charging cradle (COMP-CR1)

 

The cradle is true to its name and literally does nothing but charge the mylo. Since this task can already be performed by the AC adapter included with the device, some could balk at the cradle's $30 asking price. Read my full review below to find out...

Does mylo 2 owners need the charging cradle? Probably not. It's unnecessarily large (those metal rails should've been retractable) and essentially just a wall charger in a different shape. It's also more expensive than it probably should be (though a...

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 2

 

Preview: Sony's updated Mylo has some slick looks, but can it tempt us Brits away from our mobiles?

Slick looks. Flash support. Skype

No SIM card. Only 1.5MP camera. Not easy to type with

"Fantastic device"

 

CNET is a great place to find out the strengths and weaknesses of a product but in the case of the Sony Mylo 2, I think they were off the mark. If I had listened to the review that CNET published, I would not have gotten the Sony Mylo 2. Thank goodness...

Excellent job of all your on-line communication needs.

No support for certain websites and applications. Sony did not do a good job of marketing this product.
