PSP-3000 Value Pack in new limited edition colors coming to Japan

Sony is offering up some PSP-3000 value packs in Japan as a bit of a last hurrah for the system ahead of the launch of the PS Vita.

Perhaps most importantly it uses what appear to be passive 3D glasses rather than the expensive active style. The official press release on the display is one of the worst in recent memory and offers virtually no detail on the screen.

Gadmei P83 PMP does 3D with no glasses on the cheap

I would have to say that this is one of the more interesting items that Brando has ever had on its website. Generally the company has cheesy USB gear that is of questionable value. This PMP, which looks more like a tablet, certainly won't beat out many of the more popular and well-known PMPs in most minds, but the thing is cool nonetheless. It’s called the Gadmei P83 3D PMP.

LTE Advanced demo shows 10x regular LTE 4G speeds

Just as we'd started to revel in the speeds of LTE 4G, Ericsson had to go and spoil it all by showing us what's next in the roadmap. The company has demonstrated LTE Advanced in Sweden this week, delivering speeds 10x that of regular LTE  - over 900 MB/s in fact - by aggregating carrier spectrum into bigger blocks.
