PSP GPS

 

During the Leipzig Games Convention this week in Germany, Sony announced that they will be releasing a satellite navigational accessory for its PSP. Users will also be able to transfer recorded programs onto the game system. David Reeves, in charge of Sony’s European games unit, said the GPS will carry a price of between €100 and €150 (~$135.00 to $200.00).

The company also said an accessory for its PlayStation 3 that will allow it to record digital video will be available as well. Don’t get too excited about the changes. Although we have created our own mock-up, the real thing won’t be available until early 2008 in selected European markets.

With so many new accessories for the iPhone we can barely keep up these days, but this one about matches Mad TV’s iRack in usefulness. The Shuffle is simply one little button. Push it and it literally rearranges all your contacts, then calls one at random. Hold it down for 3 seconds and it will automatically dial another number for a three-way teleconference. There’s more, but we don’t want to spoil the other neat tricks that the Shuffle can perform with little or no effort.

We had you going there for a minute, didn’t we?

i-Station Traveller

Logic3 has come up with what they claim to be the iPhone’s first speaker system. In black gloss with silver trim, the i-Station Traveller measures 170 mm across, has a 4 watt output, and 35 mm neodymium drivers. It works with your phone vertically and horizontally, and comes with adapter and four AAA batteries. The speakers will be available for £29.99 (~$59.40) through retailers or Logic3’s online store. Because the i-Station is compatible with other media players through its 3.5 mm jack, it begs the question, which came first, the iPhone or the i-Station?
