So along with new video resolutions, some slight PSone tweaks, and what was no doubt a bit of homebrew-busting code, it looks like the recently released 3.30 firmware for PSP also came bearing another little gift, in the form of a six-month pass to T-Mobile's WiFi Hotspot network.

It's been seven long weeks since Sony last updated PSP's firmware to version 3.11. The extended lapse between then and today's firmware v3.30 could be a sign of two factors at play: 1) 3.11 actually secured the handheld (for almost 2 months), despite the firmware being quickly decrypted; and 2) comp...
