The Sony Mylo came out of nowhere, and thanks to Brian Lam of Gizmodo for giving up his spleen just so we can get a first glimpse of the device. The media player supports MPEG-4, digital audio, and pictures. It also features WiFi connection and a QWERTY keyboard, which is great for instant messaging via Google Talk and Yahoo Messenger (Sorry, no support for AIM). You can use Mylo as a wireless Skype phone or browse the web using Opera browser. It’s a shame that Mylo doesn’t offer cellular connectivity but the open standard is a breath of fresh air.
The Mylo has 1GB of flash memory as well as a Memory Stick Pro Duo slot. The screen size is 2.4-inch LCD featuring 320 by 240 pixels. There’s no mentioning of battery life. The retail price is $350 and its expected to arrive in September.
