<![CDATA[RED HERRING | Sony Adds Browser to PSP:
Sony Computer Entertainment reportedly plans to offer its own web browser next week for the popular Sony PlayStation Portable, which will enable the multimedia device to access the Internet.
The company will provide the browser as part of a Version 2.0 system firmware update starting July 27, according to reports published by IDG News Service and other sources. With the PSP, users can already play games, listen to music, view photos, and watch videos.
The interesting element of the rumor is that it will enable a streaming video service. Not likely to be a big hit, but it points to an IPTV world that is not so far away. Microsoft still seemed poised to win.
