Sony Mylo Com-2

Sony Mylo Com-2

Second Generation Wi-Fi gadget

If you just want an affordable way to chat and keep in touch with your contacts using cheaply available wireless access, this Wi-Fi device may be just the ticket. Half way between a PDA and a laptop, it has a lot of the features that many people are using these days.

Like the first-generation Mylo, the COM-2 ($299) is a Wi-Fi gadget that lets users surf the Internet, send instant messages and play MP3 music files. With an 800-by-480-pixel touch screen, it looks and feels a lot like Sony's PSP handheld gaming system and is significantly better than the original model that debuted back in 2006.


The COM-2 does double-duty as a 1.3 megapixel camera, and the slide-out QWERTY keyboard now features backlighting, allowing users to chat or surf in the dark (though the shortcut buttons on the touch screen's sides don't illuminate). It supports the 802.11b and 802.11g wireless protocols and uses 1 gigabyte of internal memory, that can be upgraded to 8 GB through a Memory Stick Duo/PRO Duo expansion slot.

The device adds AOL's messaging software and still supports Yahoo Inc's Yahoo Messenger, Google Inc's Google Talk and Skype, which is eBay Inc's Voice-over-Internet-Protocol service. And you can also watch YouTube videos with the Adobe Flash Lite 3 player and employ desktop widgets to run Google searches and track who's online.
