PSP to get web browser
« on: July 23, 2005, 03:10:38 pm »
After some weeks of hacked web browsing on the PSP, coming shortly Sony is scheduled to release an authorized web browser.  The downside of this is that in updating your PSP, the holes which allow for  current emulation hacks will most likely be closed.  Hopefully it'll be worth it. It'll be nice to check be able to check my without having to bring out the laptop.  It'll be nice when a few more decent games come out to make the PSP more playable.

I think it will be worth it.

I think the fact that it now supports WPA is great.  There has been mention that the it will ship with the v2 update when it launches in Europe.

And I would want this because....?  I would think this would be terrible seeing as navigation would be hell.  How would you type in a url, virtual keyboard?  Thats going to take forever. 

To me this is just like watching movies on the PSP, who would want to do it on such a tiny screen when you could buy a regular DVD for less and watch it on a nice screen.  The same with that V-cast service.  Wow, now I can watch TV on a 2 inch screen.  Fantastic, how about making the damn phone work!

  Cant really say why you'd want it but, it's great for people like me.  I'm hoping that there will be a favorites list so you dont have to type in the URL each time.  Ya, there's a built in keyboard that's really not that bad to use once you get used to it.  No worse than texting on a cell phone.
  I agree that UMD may be another drop in the pan media format but, being able to play video in the PSP is great.  I can put a gig of media on my memory stick (documentaries, music, pictures, tv shows and the like) to fill in the dead spots on planes, trains, and taxis for the day.  I've started dropping pictures from work on it to show friends through out the day.  Much more useful than an Ipod photo, though it is a little bigger.  Bah, you're always going to have to sacrifice some usability for portability.
  On a side note, too bad one of these isnt built into the PSP.  It'd probably run through battery life though.

The UMD movies have been doing very well.

Hope its a free download... Internet on the PSP would be easier to use than the USB cable connection, for me anyway...

I have used the PSP web browser. It is sort of confusing at first, you get the hang of it after a while.
