neither device has a true VoIP option yet, UK tech site T3 is reporting that "a source close to...Vonage"
(i.e. a friend of a friend of a friend) has confirmed that the VoIP provider is developing WiFi calling solutions for
both the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS. We've known for
awhile that both systems were capable of implementing the ol' VoIP, but other than a random blog musing we reported on
last year, this is the first indication we've seen of a major player making moves in this direction. Even for a
rumor, the details here are pretty thin, such as how Vonage plans to actually implement VoIP in the disparate devices
-- the possibilities include a firmware update for the PSP, and either DSpeak-like software or an Opera-like cartridge for the DS
-- or even a hint of when we can expect to see any products come to market. As you might expect, Vonage itself declined
to comment on the matter when contacted by T3.
