PSP Gains Support for Flash, Podcasts
Sony delivers the first of three promised software updates for the PlayStation Portable.

Sony Computer Entertainment will begin offering a software update for the PlayStation Portable (PSP) that adds several features, including support for Flash content and the ability to save audio podcasts.

At present, the PSP’s Web browser, which itself was added to the device through a software update last year, doesn’t display Flash content although the update will change that. It will bring basic compatibility with Macromedia Flash 6, although Sony notes not all functions are supported. On the podcast side, the current player can only handle live streams of files captured through RSS (Really Simple Syndication) but with the update users will be able to download and store files to a Memory Stick for offline playback.
