127w ago - PlayStation Network Sr Director Susan Panico has put together a handy FAQ of their ever-changing PlayStation Network today, as follows:
It's been a busy few weeks on the PlayStation Network with several big announcements and new apps launching.
In the month of November alone, we announced the launch of the NHL GameCenter Live application, the availability of Hulu Plus outside of PlayStation Plus, the VUDU app on PSN, and BBC America programming in the PlayStation Store.
We've also shared a new episode of The Tester 2 each week and just last week we announced a number of new games on PlayStation Home, as we marked the 2-year anniversary of the platform.

There's no doubt that PSN is in the midst of tremendous growth as we continue to expand our entertainment offering.

127w ago - A few days ago we reported on Sony's new PS3 / PSN site, and today TheSixthAxis.com (linked above) points out that it may be in preparation for an official PSN Smartphone application incoming.
To quote: What about a PSN smart phone App that will let you log in to your account on the go, queue up downloads, and generally always be connected to your PlayStation profile?
TSA reader bap10 thought he might enquire, asking SCEE:
Do you think we will ever see a mobile phone app for logging into the PSN to send messages and push demos and bought items to the PS3? Or even something along those lines for the PC?
Sony's response? Emmanuel Orssaud replied:
"I've got another post planned for this week which should answer your questions about the app. *wink*"
