PSP Gets T-Mobile Wi-Fi

Sony and T-Mobile today announced full details of the 3.30 update for the PlayStation Portable, revealing in particular that the gaming handheld can now easily connect to T-Mobile's Wi-Fi HotSpot networks. The update makes it possible to visit any of the secure wireless connections using only the gamepad to sign in. The service isn't restricted, T-Mobile says: PSP owners can browse and stream media from websites as well as play games either on the Internet or against others at the hotspot itself.

The free upgrade also adds the ability to play 480p widescreen (720x480) videos stored locally on a Memory Stick, matching the quality of a DVD, and can see thumbnails of those same videos and RSS feeds before viewing them at full size. Sony adds that the T-Mobile component is currently free for six months after signing up and switches to a special rate from then onwards.
