Following Sony's North American release of the PlayStation Portable (PSP) handheld game console this month, Information Appliance Associates has released PocketMac for PSP. This software enables users to synchronize music from iTunes and photos from iPhoto between their Mac and PSP.

On its launch industry watchers were suggesting that the PSP could be an iPod killer due to its ability to act as both a music player, a movie player, and a games machine. PocketMac for PSP ensures that Mac users can synchronize their music and photos from Apple's iTunes and iPhoto software on the device, ensuring that Apple fans can continue to enjoy the Mac facilities through the device.

It is also possible to display contact information on the PSP. Since the PSP has no built-in contact management software, it is necessary for PocketMac to convert contact information from Address Book, or Microsoft Entourage into images that can then be displayed in PSP's photo viewer.

PocketMac for PSP is available for a limited time for $9.95.
