Sony PSP support Handheld Learning 2006

Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) have confirmed their support as a sponsor for this years Handheld Learning 2006 joining Fujitsu-Siemens Computers and Palm.

This is an exciting turn of events as it demonstrates the overlap between gaming and learning in the home and at School/Uni using the capability of a powerful entertainment device in a learning context. The latest firmware upgrade for the PSP means that its built-in web browser now supports Flash media plus there's a GPS and camera upgrade just around the corner. It'll be interesting to see which establishments begin to embrace entertainment devices first and which software developers start to tap into the potential of the education sector.

Certainly something for discussion at this years conference!

Chris Deering, the former Chairman and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment (and now Chairman of Handheld Learning) will be chairing the industry panel during the Conference in October.
