Sony Playstation Portable, More that a Game Machine

I don’t write much about games, but it looks like the soon to be released Sony Playstation Portable is worth noticing beyond it’s gaming capabilities. Among other things, it looks to be a pretty awesome video player too. This is, in part, enabled by a new storage medium called UMD or Universal Media Discs. These baby’s hold 1.8 gigabytes!

And, it won’t be long before we’ll have portable devices holding much more. For example, IBM’s got a postage stamp-sized hard drive due out within two years that is said to hold about 500 times that much. Soon, your cell phone will have way more memory than any of today’s iPods.
