SONY THE PSP GO SHOULD BE ABLE TO BECOME YOUR CELL PHONE !!!!!!!

7 replies 646 views Edited Sep 11, 2010

I do not understand why I can put my Sim card into my PSP GO and use it as my cell phone also ?? I could use blue tooth to communicate. When I travel i would like to condense from my Iphone and just take my psp go but I cant .. **bleep** ?

 

**I understand the skype thing, Not what I am talking about**

but it really shouldn't though, this is a handheld gaming device.....and for the love of god, hopefully it will NEVER be a phone. The PSP is good ( and i use that term losely) at doing one thing and thats playing games. If it has to be reduced to become a phone it will do everything poorly.

I expend my PSP's battery power like water, and I would hate my phone (which is more important than games) to be cut off.

It's a portable gaming console. I hope it never gets phone capabilities.

It's pretty simple.

 

  1. The PSP Go has no antenna for communicating with mobile phone networks, so it can't be used as a mobile phone.
  2. Mobile phones use Bluetooth only to communicate with peripherals, such as headsets; and maybe for tethering a nearby PC.  Bluetooth only has a range of a few dozen meters at most, so it is useless for communicating with a mobile phone network
  3. The PSP Go does not have a SIMM card socket, because only mobile phones have those, and the PSP Go is not a mobile phone. 

To put this in iSheep terms, complaining that the PSP Go can't be used as a cell phone, is like complaining that the iPod Touch can't be used as cell phone.  It can't be used as a cell phone, because it isn't a cell phone. If it was a cell phone, then it wouldn't be an iPod Touch; it would be an iPhone.  Does that help?

 

Still wondering why they call it a smart phone.
