This phone is going to fail like the n-gage did, especially as it will have the NGP over-shadowing it.

IMPORTANT: If you hate Sony for being so corrupt, copy this image into your signature too!

What a waste this is. Nothing like putting a video game system that people would traditionally keep for several years on a cell phone that people traditionally keep an average of 2, if even.

In 3-5 years, I think Sony will realise that this is a money pit.

It is a dumb idea to start with...people asked for PSPhones for years and sony ignored them; even when they made the PSPgo the same size as a cell phone, they still ignored everyone...then they release an Android phone that can't even play PSP games...and then they release the NGP...still without phone capabilities (and given the carrier it is locked to, it might as well not have 3G either).

What is so hard about adding cell capabilities to the NGP, or even the PSPgo? Would the world end if Sony made something that their customers wanted?
