CrunchDeals: Sony Mylo 2 for $199 with free shipping


Crutchfield has the Sony Mylo 2 for $199 after a $100 instant rebate. For the record, the whole idea of instant rebates is brilliantly dumb but, hey, don’t poke at the beehive, right? The Mylo series fits into that otherworldly class of “mobile internet devices” that have Wi-Fi connections but don’t use cell networks.

So your $200 gets you online wherever you’re able to grab a Wi-Fi signal. The thing’s got Skype built-in, too, so you can make VOIP calls. There’s also an RSS reader, 3.5-inch touchscreen, 1.3-megapixel camera, slide-out keyboard, and one gigabyte of memory that’s expandable via Sony’s proprietary Memory Stick cards.
