Problem is the battery only last 3-5 hours depending on what your doing. Although we have 3g on it, Sony said it was going to be a portable gaming device. Now with that being said, Vita is going to get Skype sooner then later I hope. I would like to be able to send text messages also on it. I don't know if that the PlayStation Suite or SDK will allow that to happen, but I am very intrigued with the Vita's potential. That's why I bought it!
