Washington Post reviews Sony mylo and concludes that the Mylo is the latest device looking to blur the lines between phones, computers and media players. It’s a cute gadget that does what it sets out to do, but is it worth investing in a device that’s only fully functional at Wi-Fi hotspots? Students living and going to class on a Wi-Fi-enabled campus might think so, but $350 is a hefty initial investment even if you’re saving on monthly access fees. The Mylo’s future might depend on whether it becomes known as the next cool gotta-have gizmo.
Digit reviews Sony mylo and concludes that Sony mylo is an interesting gadget for a very targeted audience. It works well as a Skype phone and acceptably as an instant messaging device if you use the supported IM services. However, there are cheaper devices that provide these capabilities as well as or better than the mylo (including Sony’s own PSP). As it stands, $350 seems to be a premium price for the features currently supported.
