Can I use Skype, facebook etc through my wifi and are there any apps that only run through 3g?

I don't mind paying a little bit extra for a 3g I just want to know how the internet runs through both models.

3g also has GPS, which the wifi does not. A few games actually have uses for it, but not many.

The WiFi Vita does not have a GPS radio. It uses Skyhook technology to obtain location information. Skyhook determines your approximate location using wireless access points. If you're not near any wireless access points, your WiFi Vita cannot determine your location, but a 3G Vita can determine the location since it can use its GPS radio.

Here's some more info: http://faq.en.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5688/~/the-ps-vita-system-cannot-obtain-location-data-or-the-locations-that-were#2
