PSP VoIP Calls via BT

British communications giant BT and Sony on Wednesday announced a joint effort to turn the PlayStation Portable into a voice-over-Internet phone device. Using the handheld's existing Wi-Fi connection as well as the newly released Sony Go!Cam camera/microphone hybrid attachment for the region, owners will have the flexibility of calling PCs, other PSPs, and real-world cellphones or landlines. The service will at first work only through BT's public hotspots as well as user's home connections, according to the telecom firm, but should expand to distribute the necessary software to another 100 countries so that local providers can implement the same strategy.

No pricing was mentioned during the announcement, though the service will require both the Go!Cam as well as the software download. Jajah currently offers a VoIP service that explicitly supports the PSP worldwide but requires using web access rather than the integrated software referenced by BT.
