Engadget got early access to the new Sony Mylo personal communicator and published a review of the pre-production unit.
"The oblong keys take a little getting used to. They're raised ever so slightly above the surface and are unfortunately not backlit. Darker orange on orange doesn't make for great contrast, either. We wish Sony had done all the keys in white like the Symbol key.
This also may be a good reason to go for the black unit instead of the Sony's "S2" aesthetics in this scheme. However, backlighting would solve all these problems. "
Read the full review consisting mainly of photos. Sony announced the Wi-Fi communicator/media gadget early August. Amazon.com takes pre-orders now for $349.99. The mylo should still ship in September.
