PSP Launch Day is HERE!!!

Okay. It's here. I know we run a site on TV things and this thing DOES fit the bill. The PSP is the first Game/Music/Movie&TV/ player you can get. As stated before - lots of our DVDs have been ripped and converted to AVI then converted using iPSP to then view on lauch day. Oh and we will also play a few games.

Also - the folks at JoyStiq were at the launch party and have some great pictures below at the link.

Anyone got an extra 1gig Memory Stick Duo we could have?

"The weather outside is awful (this slushy substance inbetween snow and rain is no fun, especially not for gadget freaks who like to whip out their cellphones or Nintendo DSs), but that didn't stop us, a few hundred Sony fanboys, and lots of B-list celebs (who clearly needed to collect the appearance fee) from hitting Sony's official launch party for the PlayStation Portable this evening."

New Mobinote Portable Video Player


"I4U reader Samer S. points out that Mobinote announced for CeBIT three new portable video players, but it looks like nobody reporting from the CeBIT saw them.

Mobinote, known for pioneering 7 inch size screens on PVPs with their Mobinote DVX-POD 7010, announced specifically the DP7020 (DVX-POD 7020), which features built-in speakers. The photo of the DP7020 we found on a CeBIT flyer of Mobinote. It only shows the new PVP from the back.

PSP Review Roundup at Engadget

Well I just purchased iPSP and have ripped my whole set of Wonderfalls in anticipation of viewing some killer episodes while on the way to work.

This set of compiled reviews should tide you over while you wait the 3 days to get your hands on a PSP.


"You are still going to have to wait three more days to get your hands on yours, but Sony's been sending out review units of the PlayStation Portable to journalists, so we've thrown together this little roundup of all the reviews we could find (even though you've probably already made up your mind about whether or not you're going to spring for this bad boy):

PSP Casting Means TV for PSP

Can you say Bit Torrent and PSP = Portable TV MADNESS!!!! There is a ton of apps coming out for the PSP and mobile TV and Movies (if you have a giant 1gig or 512mb memory stick) will be coming to you soon enough.

"There are tons of videos available for download from the internet. Unfortunately, nearly all of it is unplayable on the PSP. Wouldn't it be cool if you could automatically download, convert and copy these videos to your PSP for later playback? Well now you can."

Gizmondo Arrives in the UK

It seems like all the portable game systems have the ability to put MP4 content on them. That means with a little creativity you can rip those DVDS you own and carry them around. Can anyone say - a game of Tetris and then perhaps an episode of Home Movies?

"You probably couldn’t pick a worse time to introduce a brand new portable game console than eight days after the debut of the Nintendo DS, but Tiger Telematics stuck to their guns and rolled out the Gizmondo in the UK today."

PSP - The Portable TV to Get

I'm convinced that the way to go is the PSP. You get games, music, and MP4 support. So a couple of Fireflys and an episode of Survivor to go please!

"I was finally able to get my hands on a PSP and … WOW! My husband is actually the “real� owner of this device and I am luckily sharing this precious toy with him. It’s really neat and, as previously mentioned, besides playing games, you can listen to mp3s and watch videos on it. I am a TV addict and having the possibility of watching movies or shows wherever and whenever I want is quite exciting, but when you find out how good the video and sound quality is on the PSP, the whole device just becomes dangerous. I know my reading activity, which mostly used to occur while traveling, will drastically decrease, and that’s just going to be the starting point. In a couple of months I will probably report how I lost my job and had to join a PSP rehab program.

RCA LYRA 2780 Portable Media Centre review

I am awaiting my PSP to view my TV on this week. Can't wait for that over this Lyra.

"The LYRA.2780 Media player from RCA, while not as well known as the latest models from Creative or iriver is certainly going to be one of the first players you’ll see when you walk into any Dixons store in the UK. So does the player with its unknown branding warrant a look."

V-RAMBO 'Wrist Video' System Puts Real-Time Video Right on Soldiers' Wrists

Imagine walking around like Dick Tracy - but it's Wonderfalls on your wrist!

"An Israeli company called Tadiran Spectralink Ltd. (Holon, Israel), a member of the Elisra Group, has just advanced the military combat application of telepresence a step further with their wrist-mounted Video Receiver And Monitor for Battlefield Operations, or V-RAMBO, for short. Tadiran Spectralink refers to the technology that V-Rambo utilizes as "Wrist-Displayed Vital UAV-Derived Intelligence".

LG PM70 Portable Media Center

This will DEFINITELY get steamrolled by the PSP for portable TV shows. Oh well - nice to have some choices though.

"Infosync has details of an as-yet-unreleased Portable Media Center device from LG, that looks a lot like the DVX-POD 7010, except that it’s an actual Windows-branded unit. The first generation of PMC devices were crippled, in my experience, by their need to transcode every type of file into Windows Media versions before copying it to the unit. That made for needlessly long transfer times and really killed the devices usefulness for anyone not totally on board with Windows’ codecs. J0rgen lists all sorts of file formats on the LG PM70, though, so if it can really play OGG Vorbis and Xvid natively, they might have a winner (this is presuming the market for portable video players won’t be steamrolled by the PSP)."
