PSP (officially) getting email and GPS?


According to a second article "leaked" from the now infamous March 06 PlayStation Magazine (which is already credited with an article detailing an Xbox Live-killer service and PlayStation 3 deets) Sony will include a new "Sony Mail" client on an "upcoming" (homebrew hating) firmware update that will allow users to setup a new email account using their PSP's unique system ID. Nice, but PSP users can already access web-based email accounts. However, the article goes on to say that Sony will also be releasing a GPS add-on "this year" which includes the peripheral device as well as UMD-based software and maps presumably like those already announced for Japan. A welcome addition over this cumbersome hack, but increasingly dubious, all the same.
