Sony Mylo Sequel at FCC

Sony is in the midst of developing a sequel to its Mylo communicator handheld for the near future, says a new FCC filing. The device is largely faithful to the original's design with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard but adds a camera on the back for taking photos likely to be uploaded and shared later; while likely to be simpler than a dedicated Cyber-shot camera, it will include a macro mode switch and likely a flash for nighttime shooting. Wireless testing also reveals the addition of 802.11g wireless, though whether it will be used for new features or just for supporting modern networks is unknown.

The article provides no direct clues as the release date, though the document was originally submitted in October and has only seen some of its information published as of last week, suggesting that Sony will not be ready to release the device in the US until early next year.
