We can indeed - but only until Public beta will close - after that you'd need to pay a yearly license fee to be able to run apps on Vita.

I've just run some sample demos on the vita as Ezio said you can do apps and homebrew, however you can only install anything on the vita itself through the Ps suite development assistant.

Well - yes ... and ... no.

You CAN run the apps (either your own or demo apps supplied with the kit) on any Vita but ... not directly but via supplied launch app Called PS Suite Dev and it will indeed guard what and where exactly are you running.

Also - once the beta will end you'll be unable to do so without paying the yearly fee of $99 which though (comparing to usual dev kit prices) is still peanuts if you're really interested in developing and you can actully even get your final product(s) published (and sold) on PS store - sweet, isn't it?

Theoretically - as long as Sony will not block it in some way (or link your kit to your particular Vita) you should be still able to distribute the SLN project to others to use it via Dev app but they'd need to purchase the $99 license as well to be able to run it, but there is no way of producing the "native" signed Vita app with this directly.

Yes, you can do apps and homebrews, however I think Sony won't let you get root privileges to hack the console ... hehehe
I just downloaded it!
