The long days of studying and homework are back. But when the pages begin to blur, take a break with Sony's new handheld the PlayStation Portable.

Released in March, the PSP plays Universal Media Disks as its primary software for games. Several movies are also being developed in UMD format to be played on the PSP.

Besides games and movies, users can save music and photos to a Memory Stick Duo disk to listen to their favorite songs and view their pictures. A recent software update gave the PSP the ability to browse the Internet using Wi-Fi hotspots. The PSP sells for $249.99 and is perfect for long breaks between classes.
