The launch of the Canadian PlayStation Vita 3G model appears to have been pushed back by two months to April 2012.
Kotaku says the delay is "due to extensive planning and testing with [Sony's] 3G partner", although the platform holder has yet to comment on the report.
More specifically, it's speculated that difficulties in reaching a pricing agreement with 3G network providers could be behind the hold up.
Customers are said to be receiving emails informing them of the delay, while EB Games sources told the site that the retailer's internal systems now show the portable as launching in April.
Vita hits Japan this Saturday, December 17, and launches in west on February 22 with at least 12 first-party games.
Before then, UK gamers will be able to go hands-on with Vita at a series of events to be held over the next few months.
