    You will have trouble convincing people to pay for another data plan.

    People don't mind paying it on smartphones as it is bundled in with minutes and texts. And phones are eclipsing current gen handheld consoles in terms of their features which allow you to use the data bundled in for web browsing, email, IM, VOIP and VOD.

    I wouldn't mind paying a "Playstation Portable Plus" which came with the current Playstation Plus benefits plus a data plan. Sony should be able to pull this off, but no one, not even Apple has managed to pull off an ergonomic design which combines the phone with gaming.
