The new ParentDish: helping raise kids of all ages

Griffin joins the PSP peripheral ranks

Despite their late entry into the PSP arena, Griffin is no minor league player in the long-standing peripherals ballgame. Serious followers and fashion victims of Apple’s iPod line have long had Griffin products to embellish their shiny white gizmos, but now a whole new army of consumers with shiny black, widescreened gizmos can get their share of the action.

Griffin announced three new PSP-geared products: the iFM PSP, the iTrip PSP, and the SmartShare PSP. The iFM and the iTrip (which both retail for $50) are radio receivers and transmitters, respectively. The iFM adds radio functionality to the PSP and adds a remote control function as well, while the iTrip acts like a standard FM transmitter that can beam audio signals from the PSP to any nearby radio. The SmartShare, despite the market-ey name, is simply a headphone port splitter with separate volume controls that will sell for $15.

Now that a major manufacturer like Griffin’s on board, there’s a good chance that other competitors will also see the market penetration that the PSP has and get on the bandwagon as well. It’s looking more and more like we’re finally entering the PSP’s golden age, folks; and it’s looking good. About friggin’ time, I say.
