"As a poor-man's UMPC, it works great!"3.5 starson by sgornick
Pros: small, fits in pants pocket. Keyboard quite usable, even for my fat thumbs.
Cons: Where do I start? Ok, how about the price tag?
Summary: I wanted to use it as a video player for some short clips, but the only way to create the Mylo variant of MPEG-4 is using Sony software that they no longer sell (Sony Image Converter 2).
Mylo has a built-in microphone but unless I used the plug-in mic the person I called couldn't make out what I was saying, so would need to carry that cord around as well.
Software limitations: I was hoping I could send an SMS to a mobile phone from Skype just like I can with Skype for Windows, but that isn't available.
Since Mylo doesn't have either AOL or MSN Messenger, I was hoping to use Yahoo!'s new cross-network service (Yahoo! --> MSN) however that too is not available on Mylo's Yahoo! IM client.
The battery life is respectable, but don't plan on leaving it powered on like you would a phone -- it will shut down/sleep to conserve juice, thus disconnecting the Wi-Fi.
I would never take a laptop to bed and read, but with a Mylo it seems different, being able to just flip it open and check my mail, etc, is really convenient.
If this were a $149 device I would recommend that everyone get one. Or keep it $349 but add GSM for (optional) voice and data, update the apps and then this device would be near perfection. Or did I just describe the next T-Mobile Sidekick?
