Summary: this was a good little device when it came out. i loved it but now its getting old. still can do instent messagers, email, web but youtube is getting harder to use, some web pages are getting to complex in these modern days. the updates, games, widget page is no longer up. if u can find one for $100 or less go for it. just dont expecte to much from it. i wouldnt pay no more then that.
Summary: I have been using the sony mylo COM 2 for over a year now. There are so many great things to say about this beloved device of mine. It has held up pretty well. People can try to compare this to other communication devices out there but the bottom line is that communicating with this device is free. There are no contracts that you have to pay for like the others. Now let's get into details about the COM 2. I did post my review on CNET as well.
Summary: The browser and WiFi connectivity is quite slow. As a result, some functionality on the device in the form of apps (Think Palm's excellent apps over the past 7+ years) could have helped this device be more acceptable. But alas, the environment is too proprietary and there aren't enough users to drive any app work. My son became very frustrated with it and gave up using it for even games.
Summary: Who cares about the widgets this device has on it or the software!!! If you sign up with igoogle for free you get a windows compatible word program and excel program plus a power point program all on the igoogle web browser! Just keep copies of the documents you want online or create new ones its all free on igoogle.com check it out no need for expensive office software or the need to store it on your communicator keep it all online for free with igoogle.
Summary: No issues really except for the fact that it said new for the product description but there are some really deep and large scratched on the back of this particular item which lead me to think this item was slammed on the floor some how because these scrathces aren't minor. Also there was never a restore done on this item and it was shipped with all kinds of stuff already programmed into it. Other than that service was as expected, no issues in that area.
Summary: This is a great little communicator... THIS IS NOT A COMPUTER!!! With that in mind, I purchased it for it's tiny footprint that can connect to wifi for use with SKYPE. It does a pretty good job of that. The screen resolution is phenomenal. Now, with that said, if I would have paid full price, I would feel a bit taken. I purchased it on the sony site under the refurbished section for $150. 1. It is a decent little camera... Just 1.3mp, but decent 2.
Summary: If you want a PDA type device, this is the only one current one with a built in keyboard and a video camera. You can also cut and paste on the text editor and transfer it to a PC. It connects like a USB storage device. It works fine for a small device.
