I could live with a PSP SKU that offered Java, SMS/ MMS and phone call ability.

But if this happened (and i dont mean from Sony Erickson but from the Playstation division) then they should release a PSP-only sku with no mobile features ,cause not everyone wants a PSP as a cell phone.

Which I don't think it is. It is a joint venture between Sony and Ericsson, but I really doubt this will happen.

giving consumers alternatives is good.

Personally i'm not interested in all-in-one devices cause of battery life issues.

But everyone has their own preference

not everyone wants to walk around with 2 or 3 different devices

They'll be really successful if they tie in a fast data plan that could be used for PSN connectivity and online play.

Well if you have the option to or not pay for service in the same device, then that would be perfect. Lol though ps mobile is shorten to psm, which is also ps magazine.

True, except now in North America PSM is no more. It changed to PlayStation: The Official Magazine sometime back in 2008.
