Sony announced its brandband communication device – MYLO (short for My Life Online), due to be available in retail in September.
From information on Sony’s website, the MYLO device looks like another great device. It got all the latest features a cool consumer device would have, WiFi, audio, video, picture, VoIP (i.e. Skype), instant messaging application such as Yahoo Messenger.
What is unknown is that who would be buying the device? Sure, Nokia’s 700 internet tablet was a success. But Sony already has the popular PSP, which has pretty much all the features the MyLO has except a full keyboard. I guess Sony is betting that people will buy yet another mobile gadget just for the sake of coolness.
