It supports the playback of MP3, ATRAC or WMA (secure and unsecure) files. You can also view MPEG-4 personal videos by transferring files via USB cable or with Memory Stick Duo media. The Sony mylo uses a lithium-ion battery that offers up to 45 hours of music playback, around seven hours of chatting and web surfing and more than three hours of continuous Skype talk time.
The Sony mylo, available in black or white, comes embedded with popular free instant messaging services: the Google Talk instant messaging service, Skype and Yahoo! Messenger. The mylo personal communicator will be available in September for about $350 online at sonystyle.com, at Sony Style® retail stores (www.sonystyle.com/retail) and at authorized dealers nationwide.
