  8. It's because this is a tablet and the PSVita is a Playstation Portable...

    Have you ever asked why Apple released a Shuffle, Nano, Classic, and touch versions of their ipods? It's because not everyone wants the same thing.

    Sony shouldn't be hindered on product release just because another portable product is going out...
