The wait for the Sony PSP 2.0 firmware in the U.S. is nearly over. According to Macworld, we should see it hit our shores on Aug. 12.
Here’s a summary of the new features:
- H.264-encoded video playback (in addition to MPEG4)
- Ability to download video clips over WiFi (but no service for U.S. customers yet. The service is limited to Japan)
- Use any image stored on a Memory Stick Pro Duo as a desktop image
- Web browser using built-in 802.11b WiFi capability
- WPA-PSK security (in addition to WEP)
- Transfer images (but not video or audio files) wirelessly to another PSP
Any information about when Sony will provide a WiFi video download service outside of Japan? Let us know.
