Follow Up – Sony Mylo Com-1

Following my post on the Mylo in early November (see post here), Dave wrote to ask where he can get one in Hong Kong. Called up couple of my techie friends in town and found out that a shop called SeeDigi in Wanchai is carrying it for HK$3,500 (US$450). For details, check out their online shop at the following link, http://www.seedigi.com.

Got some nice unpacking pics of the Mylo here from Engadget Chinese and a YouTube vid as well.

Hands on Review – Sony Mylo Com-1

Sony Mylo Well lucky me, got to try out the Mylo during lunch hour today, not long, just a brief 20 minutes and I noticed 2 design flaws already. First off, the Mylo runs on 802.11b WiFi, meaning that if you, like me, is testdriving this in a shopping mall with WiFi connections, the most you will be getting is around 1Mbps instead of 11Mbps transfer speed due to the fact that others are surfing along the same source and 802.11b, unlike 802.11g, is just not getting enough juice. Another flaw is the screen size. For Mylo, which is supposedly used for web browsing as well, the screen resolution of 320×240 under the 2.8″ screen is just not enough abeilt the zoom function. Better off using my PocketPC. My 2cents.

First Look – Sony Mylo Com-1

Sony Mylo

The Sony Mylo Com-1 is out for HK$3,500 (US$450). With only 802.11b WiFi connection and a 2.4″ 320×240 QVGA display, I don’t think it’s all that great a gadget. The Mylo comes with Yahoo Messenger, Skype and Google Talk pre-installed, but no MSN Messenger (though I can install it from its Ad Hoc Application function). Apart from the communication functions, the Mylo is basically a PMP (or a mini-size PSP) which plays movies (MPEG 4 and AAC format) and sound files (MP3, WMA and ATRAC). Other features includes 1GB storage and a pull out QWERTY keypad. For details on Mylo, please click here.
