Mylo2_update

The first software update for the mylo 2 (COM-2) personal communicator recently became available for download from the Sony eSupport website. In addition to the general "system stability" improvements, version 1.100 builds on the previous 1.000 by adding support for WMV files, squeezing a Game item into the home menu for quick access to Flash games stored on the unit, and making the system compatible with a new SHOUTcast widget.

Though not confirmed by Sony as part of version 1.100′s enhancements, MyloForums also notes the following improvements:

  • Faster launch/load of camera
  • Improved memory management
  • Smoother YouTube playback
  • Ability to view YouTube videos in full-screen mode

I’ve been unable to get the last point working for myself (tapping the full-screen button only ends up stopping playback), but I can vouch for the rest. For an incremental software update, I have to say that this one is pretty good.
