Well it looks like our annual conference will indeed give away a PSP to every attendee.

For $150.00 you can attend a full day of events and walk away with a brand new PSP.

QUESTION:  What would be the top educational things one can do with a PSP?

Hi Mr Mahoney

Here's an idea (and a plug!)

Use RedHalo to create a mobile learning environment. Adding a camera to the PSP turns it into a great device for capturing and editing pictures and video which can be "handed in" as project work using RedHalo. Also teachers can distribute images, video and other media to a school full of PSP's and other devices from a single remote location using a laptop.

RedHalo Platform Edition is free.

Running on a PSP here.

AND you could have your students play more than 90 SUMS maths games on it Smiley

If we can get our USA distribution sorted in time, maybe we could give away a free copy with every one of your free PSPs ....

...and soon the PSP will also be a phone!

Late last month, Sony Ericsson's Peter Ahnegard said the company is definitely looking into the possibility of a PlayStation Phone but that he wouldn't comment further until Christmas. Well, the President of Sony Ericsson Miles Flint couldn't wait that long.

Please contact me.  This conference would be a great place to showcase your products and pick up a Midwest distributor.

Well, we just finished the 2007 HECC conference and gave out almost 700 PSPs .  It was a great honor to visit with Darren Atkinson of Edunova and get to know such a gentleman!  You Brits were well represented and I hope to someday get to the Handheld Conference.  I also owe a great deal of thanks for David @ SUMS who helped us show their fantastic mathematic software.  I look forward to continuing my new friendships.  Thanks again for hosting the premiere handheld site on the net!  More details of the conference to come.

- I had the privilege of teaching 85 people in one room how to use the PSP.  I am sure it will be awhile before anyone will ever see almost 700 PSPs in use in one building !  Love my job !  Grin
