Looks like a Wi-Fi Skype phone, with social networking funtionality, i.e. AIM, Yahoo! messanger, Google talk, and mp3 player, web browser, etc. Plus a bunch of cool features. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mylo_%28Sony%29

LOL, yeah that first one does look like a Wal-Mart toy, but these newest look pretty sweet.

I heard/read somewhere that thet actualy made a PSP-Fone its a fone that looks exactly like a PSP but the face slides off like this one does in the pic when u want to use they keypad....

no info if it takes UMD's but i probably suppose so.

its a cool idea but judging by what a flop the PSP was - this can either sink or swim. personally i dont think it will get very far as its gotta be pretty bulky to carry around, & battry life has to be pretty decent which i doubt it unless they have a mini nuclear generator built into it

Well now that the PSP has a Skype service, it can operate as a phone now.

The original white version looked like a kid's toy, probably because of the orange and white combination, but the black version actually didn't look half bad.
