A version 2.0 update of the PS3 firmware is due to go live soon, according to a post on the PlayStation.com forums, and is packed with just about as many new features as you could possibly hope for.
The most prominent new features of the bunch include "Theme Settings" and a "wallpaper" option, which will allow you to personalize your PS3 as you can do with PSP.
An RSS feature is also reported to be included, as well as the ability to access the XMB (XrossMediaBar) during gameplay.
We're currently chasing Sony for confirmation on the full list.
