Mylo owners just scored a year of free T-Mobile HotSpot access. As anyone who has popped open their laptop in a Star*ucks knows, that's a $30 per month value. We've been high on Sony's personal communicator ever since we got the first look at it back in August. The only hangup was: How do you make Mylo useful if you don't live near a wireless mesh network? Seems that Sony answered the question today — at least for the 12 months after your first login. The offer begins in November.
So, wait, first Sony releases some DAPs with multi-format support and some decent features (line-in to PCM, noise-cancellation etc.) and then makes a deal with a service provider that really adds value and makes sense? So now we can expect:
1) A stable version of Sonicstage.
2) A PS3 for $400US that actually includes an HDMI cable.
3) A special new communicator that lets me speak to God.
