Specifications

As a device, the mylo sports a 2.4-inch 320 by 240 LCD display, 1 GB for flash memory (upgradeable to 4 GB), mini-USB connectivity, a Memory Stick Duo slot, integrated 802.11b wireless networking (supporting WEP and WPA-PSK) security), and a lithium-ion battery offering up to 45 hours of music playback, 8 hours of video time, and up to 3.5 hours of VoIP talk time. Add to that a DC input for charging or running "wired" with the AC adapter, a 10-pin headphone/microphone interface (an adapter is included), a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for composing messages, and a total weight of about 157 grams (5.4 ounces), including the battery.


Criticisms

Software

Marketing materials reference the optional Sony Image Converter 2 software for converting video to an MPEG-4 format however the Sony Style online store shows that product, MSSW-IC2, as being no longer available.


The Photo application has no zoom capability. Further, pictures transferred using the mylo Image Transfer utility are resized to a resolution of 320x240.


The Skype telephone over internet application does not support Caller ID.


PlayForSure Parters & Windows Media Player:
Currently, Windows Media Audio playback is limited to the mylo's internal memory. DRM WMA playback from Memory Stick is not supported. Memory Sticks do not support the Windows Media DRM encryption scheme, which is why it is limited to internal memory.


Sony CONNECT & SonicStage:
Currently, encrypted (Sony CONNECT) ATRAC3 playback is limited to the Mylo's internal 1GB of memory. MagicGate is not supported at this time, nor do Memory Sticks appear in SonicStage via the Mylo's internal card reader/writer. Memory Sticks currently only appear as an external Mass Storage Device when connected to a PC. Recent inqueries to Mylo customer care have indicated that the Mylo does have the hardware required for MagicGate functionality, however a firmware update has not yet been released, enabling it.


However unencrypted ATRAC3 (from CD or conversion) playback is possible via the Memory Stick's "Music" file folder. You can either "drag-&-drop" unencrypted ATRAC3 files to the "Music" folder via explorer with any Memory Stick compatible reader. Or, if you have a VAIO, PSP or MSAC-US40, SonicStage will display the Memory Stick. Upon switching SonicStage to "PSP-compatible transfer" it too will allow transfer of unencrypted ATRAC3 files. Upon insertion into the Mylo and navigating to Mylo's MS DUO folder, your ATRAC3 tracks should appear and playback.


Instant Messenger Options

The mylo has also been criticized for not including the instant messaging services of Windows Live Messenger and AOL Instant Messenger as configuration options. For the old versions of this software called MSN Messenger, see MSN Messenger. ... AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) is an advertisement-supported proprietary freeware instant messaging and presence computer program which uses the OSCAR instant messaging protocol and the TOC protocol. ...


This may change when Google Talk completes its proposed interactivity with AOL Instant Messenger in the future.[6] hoi wnr komt hij in holland ???
