    Yeah, except this is not a telephone, is it. it is only a console for playing games on.

    so maybe the apple iphone will not look quite so 'antique' as you put it.

      Any Game on iphone 4 WILL look antiquated compared to this console. Quad core processor? Quad core GPU? 5" screen? i rest my case. There is no phone in existence that can match these specs. Even the new Tegra chipset from Nvidia is just releasing their dual core mid 2011 (on an LG phone!). Quad core phones will not be around for quite a while.

      This is meant for real games, not stuff like 'fruit ninja' and 'angry birds'…. if you want proper gaming power and truly immersive games on a handheld device, then this will likely be the best option for the forseeable future. I would gladly trade integrated phone capabilities for games like Metal Gear Solid and God of War.
      What's more is that with android compatibility, you free yourself of the shackles that Apple imposes on you…

      3G plus skype, and all sorts of social networking, id say its a lot more cost effective at what it does, but i agree with you to an extent, because the iphone, i believe, is a phone based portable, while the psp is a gaming based portable, they do compete, but they have different target audiences.

      it'll run skype, so yeah, it can be a phone. i've got skype on my computer and i can call phones and they can call me. it costs about twenty bucks a year, but that's muuuuuch cheaper than my cell phone carrier.

      your dumb, bro. specs show it has everything on the 3DS (Not 2) and the only things the 3ds has are 3d capabilities and probably the price.

    ngp is better than 3ds no dout. the one thing tghat will make the ngp perfect if they made a gta for it and it was multiplayer capable and u can use the built in mic 2 talk to the other people. seriouly that would be perfect.

    Still, This will make a better console than the IPhone will make a phone… Lol, IPhone needed 3 hardware revisions and 4 os revisions to get it working to basic mms phone standards from 2004, With still no mobile video chat lol, Wifi doesnt count since the rest of the world has been video calling since before 2005 on 3g…

    It still has issues doing basic phone stuff that non smart phones have been doing for years… Wheres its support for many file types? Ability to run what u want? Flash support like any smart phone sold in last 5 years? I think Apple missed out the "smart" part of smartphone when making the iphone, the thing didnt even work properly for the 1st 3 years.

    LOL dnt think about the price. Sony have a bad habit will over priced items when they first come out, so id guess around £450 pounds or 900 dollars.

    Id say sony has its ups and downs in the portable industry, well there was only minor changes between psp-3000 and slim and lite models. But this is something that they can make up for and it is a very big improvement. Quad core-core processing :O, thats something everyone should consider, theres not much games that use 4. It could possibly be the first actual handheld device with good graphics lol

    JUST CURIOUS… if the PSP2 were available as a phone, would you replace your current phone with the PSP2? Thumbs up for yes, thumbs down, no.
