In 2006, one of the hottest mobile phones was T-Mobile's Sidekick, which offered a full keyboard for text messaging, could access e-mail, linked to AOL and MSN instant messaging, and included a digital camera. The Sony Mylo attempted to do the same things. Though the Mylo worked only on Wi-Fi, it included Skype software plus a Web browser and a messaging client. Unfortunately, the lack of a cellular connection hobbled the device just as it has the iPod Touch. A second-general Mylo launched in 2008; but it, too, failed to catch on.
