Loaded: The Sony PSP phone

2:02 /

Users of the iPhone and iPad get a software update, Google has an Android announcement later today, and Sony Ericsson is rumored to be readying an Android gaming phone similar to the PSP.

It's Thursday, August 12th. I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. Google TV announced a partnership with Direct TV. Before this deal, Google TV's initial partner was the Dish Satellite Network. Google TV uses software on set-top boxes to better add target viewers. Both networks together give Google a reach of 30 million homes. In other Google news, the company is announcing some new features for Android later today. The feature will be announced at an event in San Francisco and it could be a small mention about apps or an update to the 3.0 Gingerbread software. Although it's still early for that, we'll keep you posted. And Sony has a new Walkman out. The E350 comes in blue, red, or black, with 4- and 8-gigabyte models for $70 and $80 respectively. It's a very basic music and video player and it will be out in September. iPhone and iPad users have a software update that they should install. Apple is pushing this out in response to the JailbreakMe source code that was made public. This could give some developers the proper information to bypass certain security controls on the iPhone or iPad. It's recommended that all iOS users including those with jailbroken phones update their software now. Sprint has another 4G phone coming soon. The Samsung Epic 4G will be available at the end of the month for $250. Specs include a slide-out keyboard, 720p video recording, a front-facing camera, and a 16-gigabyte micro SD card. And Sony Ericsson could be releasing an Android phone designed for handheld gaming. Engadget says the device will be somewhere between the Samsung Captivate phone and the PSPgo. It's rumored to have a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a directional pad, and it could run Gingerbread. The source says it could be out before the end of the year. Those are all your headlines for today. I'm Mark Licea with CNET.com and you've just been loaded.
