As you know and have seen on TV Playstation has it's own phone where it has a game pad when you slide it out, and it looks like now.. the PS vita will now have something that most phones have.
It was announced today that Skype will be available on PS Vita. It seems that Sony is continuing to keep Skype on its handhelds since they had it on the PSP (2000). How well it will handle it or how well will it drain your batteries (like how Skype kills my HTC phone's battery) has yet to be determened.
Over all Playstaion and Skype seem to be getting buddy, buddy. Even after the hacked PSP Skype is still trusting them with their product on the Vita.. Is this trust or what?
Don't all the PSPs (at least starting from the 2000) already have Skype? ::eyeroll::

Whoops.. you guys are correct, sorry, didnt realize that the PSP had enough juice to run Skype without killing it :)
Thanks for the correction :)
*FIXED* Thanks guys.. let me know if that sounds better :D

Since the Vita is touch screen enabled, this should let us IM with the service as well. That I would like to see since the system is supposed to have more RAM.
That, and more processing power. I, personally, would like to see it receive updates and be more stable (a friend of mine tried using Skype on his Go and it disconnected several times, far more so than his computer). Seeing as there will also be a version that has 3G, I would like to see it work well, especially at multitasking since the 3DS is able to multitask (though I admit I don't now how well it does so, but it claims to be the first handheld video game console to be able to do so).

agreed, I use my phone as a, you know, phone with the occasional text and that's it
i get weird looks all the time
I spend my limited game budget on games, not on phones that have games I'd only sort of play
is there a big rush of people using Skype more?
