The PS Vita features a five-inch OLED screen with dual analogue sticks and motion sensors. It is available in a WiFi only model and a WiFi/3G model which retails for $348 and $418 respectively.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
