GameSpot has some details from an Interview of SCE Software Platform Chief Izumi Kawanishi that was published in Japanese magazine Famitsu.
Besides making the Sony PSP browser more usable and improve direct video downloads and also maybe introduce streaming video, the most interesting discussed future feature is an email client for the PSP. Sony actually thinks beyond text emails. The company considers to introduce video and audio communication.
For video communication obviously a video camera is necessary. This would imply Sony is planning to come up with a
Video camera accessory for the Sony PSP. To do text emails on the Sony PSP a keyboard
is also necessary. The
PSP keyboard that surfaced a while ago, is supposed to ship end of October.

With the help of I4U readers we published a future feature wish list for the Sony PSP a while ago.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
