More for the PSP – GPS inbound for the U.S.

GPS on PSPSony is on a roll with the PSP, which is quickly becoming the Swiss Army Knife of the handheld market.

Hot on the heels of their Skype announcement, Sony revealed that GPS navigation will also be available on North American PSP units sometime in the near future (Japan has been enjoying this feature for some time now).

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the official PSP GPS software was shown off, with a UMD providing the map information necessary to navigate. This is also how the final form of the PSP GPS is expected to work.

"Your PSP will provide 2D/3D locations, driving directions, POI’s, and even downloadable city guides. With an easy search feature feature and customizable settings, GPS on PSP is the easiest way to navigate new areas and new cities."

There is no official time frame for this service’s release, but it won’t be too long, now. Better yet, the feature shouldn’t be restricted to the PSP Slim, so far as we can tell. Wooooo!
