Sony Prepping PSP phone

leave a comment »

Finally. Someone at Sony shows some sign of intelligence and is combining their handheld console with their phone device. People have been demanding this since the beginning and it seems that Sony is finally listening. In an effort to create hybrid network of all their electronic to a Sony Online Service, their phone company Sony Ericson is teaming up with the PSP team to create a PSP phone. [via Engadget]

You know who knows everything? People familiar with the matter. In particular, they know everything when “the matter” happens to be Sony’s handheld strategy for 2010, which is said to finally include an honest-to-goodnessPSP with phone capabilities — something the world’s been demanding for as long as they’ve wanted a Zunephone. According to the WSJ, the device is apparently part of a larger push by Sony to create an iTunes-like Utopian ecosystem of products this year that connect to Sony Online Service, an ecosystem that would also include a hybrid portable of some sort that “blurs distinctions among a netbook, an e-reader and a PlayStation Portable.” Details aren’t offered on this particular monster — but turning our attention back to the phone for a second, it’s claimed that Sony’s working with it in conjunction with the folks at Sony Ericsson under the direction of Kunimasa Suzuki, an exec largely responsible for the VAIO line who’s also involved with the PlayStation team. Of course, SE’s already taken some baby steps toward corporate harmony by bundlingRemote Play support with the Aino, but everyone knows that PSP compatibility is the panacea; Microsoft finally buckled on the Zunephone thing with the introduction of Windows Phone 7 Series, and there’s no reason why Sony shouldn’t follow suit.

Sony Super High-Res Enlargement Tech

leave a comment »

This technology Sony developed may very well be used for their PSP or PS3 system. The possibility of using this as a browser is amazing. You can zoom in infinitely into an area of the screen. It doesn’t enlarge the image but simply just zooms in. Therefore, you will never have pix elation.  The porn possibilities is only limitless. Article via Engadget.

Video: New high-res image enlargement for PS3 and PSP takes extreme closeups to a new level

The GigaPan has opened new doors in ridiculously high-resolution imagery, creating pictures so huge our feeble human minds can’t hope to comprehend them. Sony’s getting in on the action, not so much with the idea of capturing historic events at gigapixel resolutions, but providing the same sort of effect by linking multiple documents and items together and allowing you to zoom from one to the next. The video after the break shows a number of demonstrations, including what looks to be a release calendar that, inside each cell, contains high-resolution photos and even videos of whatever is releasing that day. Hidden advertising is also possible, like a mosquito on a man’s face tagged with an ad only apparent after you’ve gotten uncomfortably close to the poor man’s face. The adult entertainment opportunities are endless. Also demo’d is a new voice recognition library for the PS3, dubbed PS3VR, which can take you straight to your Cindi Lauper albums even if you’re not a girl and are seemingly disinterested in having fun. That tech isn’t quite so interesting, but it and the high-resolution libraries are intended for release to developers… eventually.
