    I think if you want a phone version of the Vita, then go out and buy the Sony Xperia Play, because that's as close as you'll get to it.

    Mobile gaming is great, but if anyone wants games on their phone, then they'll just go out and buy an iPhone.

    Sony should stick to making game consoles only and tvs, not by making an all in one device and compete with the iphone it won't win against the causal audience.

    Or an Android. But, you're right Xperia Play is as close as they'll get and I'd like to add I don't think Sony would waste time on something that won't appeal to most of their audience.

    Yeah get an Experia Play or Andrioid. Besides, you know they will make a Vita Slim or Vita 2000 or something in 9 months anyways. The Vita price in a year will probably be dropped by a big amount.

    It could be. The 3G has a phone number available. A text messaging app would be cool.

    I'm sure that's what they'd rather do. Much easier to make the VITA (which is a handheld gaming console) have some apps that transform it into a semi-phone than having a phone with handheld-like capabilities. It's a much safer bet to play and you ain't going to war against Samsung and their cohorts just to get horribly owned.

    It won't be long now before Sony or someone else releases some sort of App that allows you to make phone calls or text through the VITA. I mean you can text through a wifi ipod so why not through a 3G gaming system.

    It's still new, give it a bit more time, it will happen, I can almost guarantee it lol

    I don't have a vita, nor do I have any intention of getting one, but according to IGN, you can already recieve text messages on the vita...

    source:

    So it's probably only a matter of time before it incorporates some sort of phone...
