Sony has released a software update for this model which brings improved device performance, multimedia refinements, and other enhancements.

About the Sony mylo COM-2

The Sony mylo COM-2 is the second of Internet tablet device designed by Sony. This iteration features a larger screen, slide-out keyboard, improved Wi-Fi, and many multimedia and browser improvements over the initial version.

Like the previous model, it is able to view websites and take pictures. However, the mylo COM-2 features several upgrades in performance and ability, making it a solid option for those looking for a device that is the size of a PDA, but has several wireless connectivity options.

While not open to third-party development, there are several widgets available for the mylo COM-2 that extend its web functionality.

It has a suggested retail price of $300.
