Remember late last year when Sony began offering a $100 instant rebate on the mylo 2 (COM-2) internet device? The reduced price was only supposed to be good until the end of January 2009, but it turns out that the "limited time" savings wasn't so limited after all.
Now advertised simply as "starting at $199.99" (see screenshot below), the mylo 2 has become so tough to resist at its lower price that there aren't any left!
Not brand new ones, anyway.
The only devices that can be purchased from Sony Style now are refurbished. But considering that the price on these units is just $150, it doesn't really matter that they aren't fresh from the factory. In fact, the odds of getting a mylo 2 in perfect working condition are probably greater when taking the refurbished route since each unit has been personally tested to meet certain quality standards.
The Sony mylo 2 isn't as capable as the Nokia N810, iPhone, or whatever else you want to compare it to, but $150 for a WiFi-enabled device that has a WVGA touchscreen, Flash support, NetFront web browser, video recording, direct upload to YouTube capabilities, user-created widgets, and the ability to purchase and download music from Amazon MP3 isn't bad at all.[Refurbished mylo 2 at Sony Style]
