Fail. The Playstation Phone should be a phone line and not a single model. New models should always be released with improved hardware and software until the former becomes obsolete.

Definitely, definitely bloatware...
Not one review across the entire web has mentioned bugs / crashes / crippling software...
It's bad enough carriers delaying phones, but because they feel they have to add their own software? RIDICULOUS.

by then O2 would have already lost a majority of the phones potential sales because most of the sales for anticipated devices (and in this case heavily advertised) occur in the opening 2 months. They've let their competitors get in first so capture the remaining market potential they have to add some real value to it or drop its initial price, but even then they lose out on profits; they really stuffed this one up.

T-Mobile UK have had this handset available for free at £40 for nearly a month now. Whats the big deal with O2 getting it in June??
