Of course it has no $100/month sucking data plan attached to it? What business manager thought up this turkey? U give away the device and get monthly income from users. Duh.

It's not a phone. Plus, wifi is so prevalent that you'll be hard pressed to not be able to find a connection when you want one. I am picking one up tomorrow and looking forward to it.

I used to be a portable gamer, but I've settled for playing vids at home. Sure I will play Words with Friends on the go but that's about the extent of it for me. I find that reading a book is more pleasurable when traveling or commuting. As for the article, I think that it's better if a portable doesn't have a phone built in. Mobile batteries don't last long enough as it is, so why would you want your phone dying because you played games for a few hours? With the 4 or 5 different PSP models Sony released, I think gamers should wait a while before purchasing the Vita.
