Sony Vita to Ship With Skype

Just the like the PSP (well, the later versions) Sony's next handheld will come with Skype support built-in allowing users to make Wi-Fi (and possibly 3G) calls to friends with their hefty gamesbrick! The feature was spotted via the company logo at a demo in South America.

That gives the device some credibility as an all rounder, but its still 98% games machine 2% phone and should never be confused as such. Despite the 700 million odd Skype accounts, how many people do you actual use it with? And, we'll assume that Microsoft, the new owners of Skype, are staying true to its word about letting rivals maintain access to the service.
