First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Sony updates PS3, PSP menus with cool new features

For the PlayStation Portable, firmware update 5.0 has been released, bringing with it the opportunity to browse and download content directly to your PSP from the PlayStation Store. Previously, content needed to be downloaded to a PC or PS3 first before being transferred to PSP using a USB cord.
New to PS3 version 2.5, also available Wednesday, are more than a half dozen updates, including screenshots, which like a "print screen" function to save in-game images directly to your hard drive using a keyboard, and auto-off for idle controllers to save battery life (nice!).
Also new to PS3 firmware 2.5 is a standby option to auto turn off your PS3 after 1-5 hours of use (much like Xbox 360), Flash 9 support for the PS3 web browser, improved trophy management, the ability to see when a friend last signed on, and a faster PlayStation store.
Not a bad deal for being free. What do you think of the updates? (My favorite is the auto-off controller -- lovely.)
