Sony PSP

If the pricing in Japan is any indication, Sony PSP could enter US market at $199. This is exciting news. Gaming has such a huge cult-following (PS2 alone has "tens of millions of customers") that Sony could wipe the competition away.

Check the feature-list:
. WiFi connectivity (link up to 16 handhelds together for network gaming) based on 802.11b
. IrDA, USB2.0, AV in/out, Stereo headphone out
. 4-6 hours battery life for game play and 4-5 hours for movies
. Not just ATRAC support, MP3 finds approval!
. Uses 1.8GB Universal Media Discs (for gaming, and possibly movies)

A big-miss > hard-disk. [ PMPs heave a collective sigh of relief ]

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
