Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) gets a real browser (and other cool stuff)

by Todd Ogasawara

The Sony Playstation Portable (PSP) 2.0 firmware upgrade scheduled for release on July 27 includes a real browser (no more fussing around with Wipeout Pure :-) and video downloading (PC World article). There are also rumors that it may include some document readers (or actual office appliactions) and an email client (The Register article).

The addition of a browser and video downloads is cool enough.
If the rumor about the office apps and email client is true, all I would need is some kind of decent text input method and an extra battery to consider using the already great Sony PSP for a lot more of my day-to-day functions.

Seen any cool and easy to find text input hardware or software for the Sony PSP?

...but unfortunately the homebrew apps won't run on any firmware beyond v1.5...yet.
