Fry's is once again selling the Vita for $199.99 until Oct. 4. If you don't have a Fry's store nearby, you can still order one from Frys.com.
i just want the 3g cuz im gone a lot and if i need to make a call from skype i have to find a wifi connection or if im waiting in the car well my wife goes in the store, i would like to check the forums or twitter and i cant. im going to get a 3G model soon.
Your situation would be suitable for the 3G model, however IMO for many that would be redundent from what their smartphone can offer. Since the 3G aspect really won't be supported for gaming, I don't see that this model is going to be very popular in the long term...
