If I have to get a PSP2 as I do being a gaming freak, why would I buy the PSP phone I thought the idea would be to combine them and save me the trouble of draging two things around. If I have to drag two things around why would I buy the psp phone?

this has 3G, built in mic (and camera) and speakers, so internet and phone features in the PSP2 would be a no brainer... as i need my phone to make calls and send messages, id much rather have a game console that makes calls than a phone that plays games.

I believe storage for games is going to be some proprietary flash memory card. There will most likely be storage for non-game content, so probably an SD card slot or memory stick.

Only downloaded ones, given that the new handheld doesn't have a UMD slot.

Now updated with a game showreel ;)

Sadly it's a YouTube handycam job, but it'll do for now. Was waiting on some more official shots from Sony, but the only thing they have released properly has been the console shots.

Biggest battery drain in mobile devices is the display, OLED will combat this well.

Glad Sony will sell two SKUs; one with 3G and one WiFi only model.
