PlayStation Portable
This incredibly powerful and much-awaited handheld device from Sony has sold half a million units in just the first two days of its launch, and not without reason!

The PlayStation Portable features a large 4.3-inch 16:9 aspect LCD screen with a really sharp and crisp 480 x 272 resolution. It supports USB 2.0, Wi-Fi, Memory Stick Duo and uses Sony's proprietary Universal Media Disc (UMD, which is more or less like a mini disc) and has a massive 1.8 gig of space!

Apart from the huge list of game titles that are being released en masse, this device will also play music, video and image files, provided you plug in a sufficiently large Memory Stick!

If you put it in the USB mode with the Memory Stick inside, it can also act as a removable USB drive. For a mere $300   (approximately Rs 15,000), the PSP is absolute value for money, to say the least. We wish it could also make phone calls. Now that would redefine the term portable!
