Much as Steve Jobs had predicted during his keynote this summer, the popularity of podcasting and the demand for podcast downloads has exploded. Enter the Sony PSP with its latest Firmware Upgrade: version 2.60.
AS Cnet reports, this latest Firmware upgrade for the popular handheld boasts RSS support for audio streams and WMA (windows media audio) file support in an attempt to answer to the demand for podcast support.
It’s unfortunate that it took Sony this long to catch onto the trend. After having proclaimed the Playstation Portable as the ultimate mobile media and gaming machine you would think they would try to keep pace, at least relatively, with the trends of the electronically savvy.
