PSP Update 2.0!.
I just loaded it up and I'm surfin' the web from my PSP baby! W00t! It's not the greatest browser in the world, but it seems very okay from my few minutes of testing it. The pages load relatively fast, the fonts are anti-aliased and look good, and the controls are reasonable - even URL entry (the secret is the shoulder buttons!). Holding down the square key allows for fast controlled scrolling with the arrow keys or analog stick, otherwise the analog stick moves a cursor like a mouse and the arrow keys jump from link to link. There are several view options (which took me a minute to find) which allow for "Normal", "Just-Fit" or "Smart-Fit" views, as well as the ability to change font size. Definite not bad for what I paid for it! :-) Well worth the upgrade (this PSP was already at v1.51 so I couldn't run "homebrew" apps anyways).
- Connect your PSP to your PC via USB cable.
- Goto the directory /PSP/GAME/ in your memory stick.
- Create a sub-directory named "UPDATE" (MUST be uppercase)
- Copy the downloaded PBP file into this directory.
- Rename it to "EBOOT.PBP" (MUST be uppercase too)
- Disconnect the PSP from the PC
- In PSP's XMB interface, goto "Game" -> "Memory Stick"
- Browse to the Update file and start it.
need to plug in the AC adapter.
In case you're wondering, here's the User Agent it sent to my server: "Mozilla/4.0 (PSP (PlayStation Portable); 2.00)"
This is very freakin' cool and totally lives up to my expectations. Rock!

The browser is good, the viewing is pretty, but I wonder if it's good enough to use on trips. Gmail works, but other sites (not surprisingly mailblocks) do not. Still, this is clearly the way for Sony. Come on! Now a Mail client (with IMAP support, pretty please).
