June is always a busy month for new gadgets. The E3 video games show, Taiwan's Computex IT show and Singapore's CommunicAsia all provide a launching pad for new products and other companies are busy preparing new gizmos for the upcoming mid-year holidays.
Sony PSP Go: Perhaps the most anticipated gadget of the month was Sony's redesigned PlayStation Portable, the PSP Go. The device ditches the UMD (Universal Media Disc) slot and instead will store games downloaded from an online store in its 16GB memory, which makes much more sense given the strides made in wireless networking and storage technology in the last few years. Without the UMD slot it's smaller and also includes Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Sony will continue to sell the UMD-based PSP and release software on disc for the device so current users won't be left with an obsolete product.
