Codebreaker

PlayStation Portable (PSP) phone may be on the way

John Moe Oct 27, 2010

Because the world needs more phones? No, that’s probably not it. But maybe the world needs a more sophisticated game playing device that can also make phone calls. Engadget has what it says are pictures of the new Sony device.

It’s supposedly going to launch with a dedicated downloadable games store. It’s interesting to note that besides this Engadget story, there was word yesterday that prices on the PSP were dropping from $249 to $199. That could be an indication that space is being cleared for a PSP phone. I continue to think that for young people, the idea of a device that plays really high level games that they can also use to text and call would be very successful. I wonder if the Windows phone could be that, given the Xbox integration.
