BT, Sony video phone on PSP

August 26, 2007

BT Group and Sony have unveiled new software that will allow gamers using portable PlayStations to make video and voice calls and send instant messaging. They said the Go!Messenger wireless software for Sony’s PlayStation Portable (PSP) handheld game player was set for commercial launch in January 2008.

In a battle for supremacy against Japanese rival Nintendo’s hot-selling DS rival game player, Sony and BT said the software allowed PSP gamers to keep in touch by connecting to any broadband wireless Internet point at home or out and about using VoIP.
