PSP iTrip unveiled

IPod accessory-maker Griffin wants to turn your handheld into a radio station

Griffin Technology, makers of the popular iTrip radio transmitter for iPods, is rolling out a line of audio accessories tailor-made for the PSP. Most notable is (surprise, surprise) a PSP-exclusive version of the iTrip, a sleek-looking, clip-on FM transmitter that lets you broadcast music or game audio to the nearest stereo.

Also announced were the iFM Radio Tuner (for all those times you've wanted to listen to the radio through your PSP) and the SmartShare adapter, a headphone splitter with individual volume controls - useful for, say, watching a UMD movie on a plane with a sensitive-eared friend.

Due to filter into stores soon, the iTrip and iFM sell for $49.99, while the SmartShare goes for $14.99. (For those who can't wait, all three are available for order now on the company's website at www.griffintechnology.com.)

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
