Sony Mylo — available soon with Skype
Sony just announced [Mylo](http://www.sony.com/mylo/). It has WiFi and Skype. It will be available in September for about $350 on [sonystyle.com](http://www.sonystyle.com) and Sony retail stores and authorized dealers.
Mylo stands for My Life Online. It’s an interesting device for Skype, Sony and the other involved partners because it’s the first of its kind. You can talk with it, but it’s not really a phone. You can listen to music, but it’s not just an MP3 player. It’s all these combined, and more. Two Mylos that are close can automatically detect each other and stream music and things across. It has a full slide-out keyboard so when entering info, it doesn’t limit you to some obscure onscreen entry method or entering characters with number keys like you do with most cell phones. You can surf the web, work with photos and videos… see the [Mylo page](http://www.sony.com/mylo/) to find out more.
We’ve put a lot of effort into working with Sony to make Skype run great on this thing. It does all the Skype features you’d expect — calls, voicemails, chat (one-on-one and in groups, and with animated emoticons), profile and contact management… And remember we got free SkypeOut calls in North America to the end of the year? So you can walk around and do free Skype and phone calls.
In addition to Mylo, we announced WiFi phones a while ago. We have more devices coming. The remainder of 2006 will be a very interesting Skype gadget year.
