Sony is to release mylo, a wireless handheld device for young people who use instant messaging.
It has a small display and keyboard and is pitched at the young, mainstream market who use IM and are interested in making net telephone calls.

Sony has formed a partnership with Skype for net phone calls and with Yahoo and Google for instant messaging.

The mylo, which stands for "my life online", will only be available in the United States.

The device cannot be used for mobile telephone calls and as such there is no need for a monthly contract or subscription.
More details at BBC. The device will be available for $349.
