The most over-hyped personal gaming platform ever, if coverage during 2004 is anything to go by.
- Browser is moderately fast, has (three) tabs
- Complains about lack of memory on image-intensive pages

HTTP_USER_AGENT Mozilla/4.0 (PSP (PlayStation Portable); 2.00) HTTP_ACCEPT */*;q=0.01 HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING (yes, it's empty) HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE en HTTP_CONNECTION Keep-Alive
The PSP uses a separate User-Agent for streaming music files via HTTP. It sends as referrer the RSS feed URL, and asks for byte-ranges (apparently in multiples of 8192, but I have done only one Ethereal trace so far):
GET /stream.py/foo/bar.mp3 HTTP/1.1\r\n User-Agent: PSPRssChannel-agent/1.0.0 libhttp/1.0.0\r\n Accept: */*;q=0.01\r\n Accept-Encoding: \r\n Accept-Charset: iso-8859-1;q=0.01\r\n Range: bytes=0-\r\n
- PSPWare - sync with Mac OS X iLife applications
- Media Manager - Sony's Windows front-end.
- Lua Player a Lua runtime for developing homebrew games.
- Python port - oh yeah...
- The first known HTTP server (bloody pointless, but a landmark nonetheless)
- Using the built-in browser - which actually looks like the PS2 browser, and can be fooled in mostly the same way.
