Sony is teaming up with BT in the UK to transform the PSP into a cellphone of sorts, letting users hop onto BT hotspots (or their own personal WANs) ’round the country and make phone and video calls. Sony is expected to release a microphone and camera in the UK “soon,” which would facilitate the PSP Phone. BT picked the PSP because of its screen and audio capabilities. How nice of them.
Surely no one can deny that the PSP has a terrific screen, so maybe this phone can help revitalize interest in the system. I’m sure Sony is thinking of all sorts of ways to stop the bleeding brought about by the DS.
