PSP Browser Revisited

Ok, after playing with the PSP web browser for a week, here's my take on it.

Couch: I had hopes that the PSP would be good for light web-surfing while watching tv on the couch, but I'm going to stick with the laptop. The PSP browser doesn't handle a lot of sites well and runs out of memory on many sites that aren't text-only. Plus, while I'm couch-surfing I like to have dozens of tabs open and flip back and forth between different places. The PSP browser only handles 3 tabs and doesn't handle switching back and forth very well.

Stationary Bike: This is where web-browsing on the PSP shines. I just go to a few sites every morning (stocks, news, blog feeds), but that's good enough for 40 minutes of exercising.

Randomly around the house: I occasionally fire up the PSP around the house when I want to check on a stock price quickly or I see a blurb on a news item on tv and want to find out more info immediately (i.e. plane crash details). It's not as instant-on as I would like, but it's still faster than using my laptop. Actually, I should try taking the UMD out of my PSP and maybe it will boot straight to the menu instead of a game, which would help speed things up.

Subway: I've read about trains with wifi, but, alas, mine doesn't have it, which sucks. I haven't even been taking my PSP on the commute anymore as I've been trying to catch up on my sleep these days.
