Sony and T-Mobile have teamed up in the USA to offer mylo users a year’s subscription to internet service at T-Mobile HotSpots.
The promotion, which starts in mid-November, offers users the chance to connect at HotSpots for 1 year from the date the device first connects or from 31 December, 2007, whichever comes first.
In order to access the free service, mylo users must download a special application from www.sony.com/mylo so that the device can log on without charge.
T-Mobile counts over 7000 HotSpot locations across the US, including many Starbucks, Borders Books stores, Kinko’s Office and Print Centers, Hyatt Hotels, Novotels, and some airports and airline clubs.
A Sony mylo personal communicator costs $350, while a year’s subscription to T-Mobile HotSpots costs about the same amount again, so whichever way you look at it, this promotion is a good deal.
