Sony's NGP: It's The Little Things That Matters
Posted on Friday, January 28 2011 @ 05:49:11 Eastern

Touch screen, Front and rear cameras, Wi-fi and 3G network? Yes these great specs are available with Sony’s NGP (Next Generation Portable), but do we really want to care so much toward these three details? It seems today every mobile device has these three specs (maybe not both front and rear cameras, but you get the picture). Everywhere you look, you always see that advertisement for a smart phone saying, “Oh rabble rabble rabble 3G/4G network rabble rabble.” You can’t get away from it.
 
People are so fascinated knowing they’ll be able to control this device with touch screen technology along with the abilities. Being able to take pictures is a nice feature. Guess Sony does have to compete with the Nintendo 3DS don’t they?  After reading these specs about Sony’s NGP, I started to list what specs I valued the most. Laughing to myself, I found out it was the specs we least worried about concerning the most to me.
 
What would you assume would be my favorite feature of the NGP? Do you believe it’s the touch screen? How about the camera abilities? Why not the ability to connect wirelessly around the world? If you are guessing I would favorite one of these, then you guess wrong. My favorite part of the NGP (so far) is the addition of a new analog stick. Yes, I value this more than fancy touch screens. Here’s why
 
When playing games with the PSP, did you think it was rather difficult controlling the camera with your action buttons? Exactly! How hard was it for you to target your opponent in an FPS game? Yes, those actions buttons aren’t exactly your resource for fast reaction now are they.
 
It’s not even those stubs that came on the PSP. They actually look like analogs sticks. Being able to use these babies is by far better than having a touch screen in my opinion.
 
It’s the little things that matter that makes a big difference. We could go about and keep making the new technology into smaller devices, or we can correct the mistakes in the previous. Sony’s NGP has done both (so far) and hopefully these are some reasons why it won’t fail and perhaps live up to its name "Next Generation Portable."
