The brand new Sony Mylo, due to hit the streets in September, is a lightweight solution to wireless internet browsing, instant messaging and making Skype calls away from the shackles of the desktop. In a web video exclusive, our friends at Gizmodo, the online gadget guide work through the range of features, and the outcome is impressive.

With Skype, Yahoo Messenger, Google and a fully featured Opera web browser on board, in addition to mp3 and video playback, the Mylo offers an all in one communication and entertainment device light enough to take everywhere. Utilizing 802.11b WiFi, the Mylo allows for file sharing, Skype calls and IM both on and offline.

Whether quietly chatting from the other side of the office, watching YouTube on the train to work, or delivering a multimedia elevator pitch, Mylo looks to be a stylish, versatile essential for the always-on crowd. With a nod to Apple's iPod, Sony will release the Mylo in white and black models, with an easy to use thumbwheel for quick navigation, and a QWERTY keyboard for text entry.
