Live Your Life Online: Sony's New Communicator Takes IM, Web, and VoIP Out of the Computer and Into Your Pocket

Sony President to Announce Agreement at Keynote Address

NEW YORK, Oct. 12 // -- For Generation Y -- which is more than 70 million strong -- passing notes and pen pals have been replaced by instant messaging and social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace. And as wireless access to the Web expands around the country -- with more than 41,000 Wi-Fi sites nationwide, it's growing faster than cell phone networks did. And now there's a new way to connect to the web, and your friends using Wi-Fi with Sony's mylo personal communicator. This device allows you to send instant messages with Google Talk(TM) instant messaging service and Yahoo! Messenger(TM). Registered Skype users can use the mylo communicator to make free Internet calls with the 113 million other Skype users. The embedded HTML browser lets you connect to full Web pages on the Internet and send and receive text emails with web mail services.

The mylo device will be showcased at the 2006 DigitalLife Trade Show taking place at the Javits Center in New York City, Oct. 12-15. Stan Glasgow, President and COO of Sony Electronics Inc. will keynote the trade show, and he'll announce an exciting new offering for the mylo communicator at 11:30 a.m. ET.
