Sony Ericsson's Aino isn't the PSP phone, but maybe it's the next best thing—it's the first phone with Remote Play, so you can remotely control your PS3 and watch videos from it over Wi-Fi or anywhere through the internet. Why the hell didn't Sony do this before?

It also has a new feature called Media Go that'll automatically pull media off your PC over Wi-Fi whenever you plop it in the charging stand—obviously it requires a client on your PC, but whatever.

Oh yeah, it's a 3G GSM phone too. It's got a 3-inch screen, 8-megapixel camera with geo-tagging, light photo editing and video recording, built-in Facebook, YouTube, and Google apps like Search and Maps. It'll be out at the end of the year, likely for an ungodly sum given all the features packed into it. [Sony Ericsson]

"Why the hell didn't Sony do this before?"

I ask that question all the time. Sometimes you look at what companies can do by just taking advantage of other departments available to them, yet the companies themselves never see it. I know it can be hard, but how about a little effort. And I'm not only talking to Sony either.
