You have a friend you need to IM and at the same time you need to look up directions to tonight's party, all while monitoring that auction on eBay. What's the solution? Well, you can drag your laptop around or you can buy mylo, Sony's new communication device.
The personal communicator, dubbed mylo (which stands for My Life Online) by Sony, comes with a ton of cool features. mylo offers WiFi for wireless networking, an HTML browser, an audio player that supports MP3, WMA and ATRAC audio files. It also plays video files and you can view pictures of your friends (or favorite celebrity).
Slide the 2.4 inch color LCD screen up and a full QWERTY keyboard emerges to make short order of those instant messages. For now, the device only supports Yahoo Messenger and Google Talk.
But what separates mylo from your average media player is that it allows phone calls utilizing the Skype Internet phone service over WiFi.
With the ability to communicate that much, you may never have to go home again. mylo hits the streets in September.
