Sony's PlayStation Vita is ostensibly a portable gaming device, but it packs enough tech to make you think otherwise. (like the pair of cameras, built-in GPS and 3G mobile broadband, for starters). You interact with the Vita through its 5-inch OLED touchscreen. Its six axis motion sensor lets you tilt and move the device to impact game play or use the built-in physical controls to navigate your way through the action.
It's pack with several features and apps including "Near" - which lets you see where other PS Vita owners are around you. There's also Cross Play, which lets you start a game on Sony's PlayStation 3 and continue where you left off on the Vita.
It costs $299 for a version with 3G or $249 for a Wi-Fi only package. Most reviewers were wowed by the system - loving the game play, screen and ambition of the device.
