XTen contemplating Sony PSP VoIP Softphone?

7 Comments

XTen CEO on his blog is wondering if it was time to develop a softphone client for Sony PSP. “Since we can browse the web on this thing, and it has a USB port, Wi-Fi and a TCP stack you would think we should be able hack together a softphone for VoIP. Video will come later, camera attachment. I will keep you posted.” Yo Erik…. this is a slamdunk, don’t wait too long. How about one for Symbian phones as well? via

Jason, you don’t know that much, do you?

“In addition, odds are that none of them know how to use the embedded WiFi”

I am 13 years old, and I use skype all the time, I run my home-network and I use my psp’s WiFi capabilities to the max.

“Most of the people with a PSP are teenagers”

Lots of adults I know own a PSP, and aren’t immature

P.S. I also have a Palm Zire, I know it’s hard to get internet on them, but why not buy a netgear WiFi phone or a PSP for the sake of it?

Howabout we get a port for the Palm OS first? It really pisses me off how there is no (well, now there is a skype-out version, but that doesnt count) version of Skype or any other VoIP smartphone for Palm OS, whereas they are abundant in Pocket PCs. The last time I checked, more people had Palm PDAs than PSPs, so why not appeal to the masses? Most of the people with a PSP are teenagers, and they already have a cellular phone. In addition, odds are that none of them know how to use the embedded WiFi. This makes a softphone VoIP solution for the PSP a highly underused application in the future, and will be a bad business decision for XTen. I urge this company to rethink its business strategy and urge everybody to help by signing this petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/voip406/petition.html
