Modern mail man

The PlayStation Vita’s upcoming v2.00 firmware update will not only add PlayStation Plus to the portable platform, but also a new email application as well. You’ll be able to hook up any accounts to the handheld assuming you have the appropriate information available – but there will be quick select options for Gmail and Yahoo.

The application will allow you to store up to five email accounts on a single device, as well as 5,000 contacts. Incoming emails will be added to the Vita’s notification window, allowing you to gain easy access to all of your most recent messages.

Other software updates will include improvements to the web browser, 1080p video playback, and the ability to share content wirelessly between the Vita and a PC.
