NASHVILLE, TN - March 16, 2006 - Griffin Technology Inc., creator of all things iPod, today announced that it has begun creating all things PSP. Committed to making the most advanced PlayStation Portable accessories, Griffin is bringing true innovation to gaming with its first three products: the iTrip, iFM, and SmartShare, all for PSP.

"The PSP's popularity continues to grow and break new ground for fans of gaming, movies, and music," said Paul Griffin, CEO of Griffin Technology. "Griffin's goal is to make accessories that are as high end as the system itself. We want to genuinely enhance the playing, viewing, and listening experience for the enthusiasts of the system."

Griffin's family of accessories for the revolutionary portable device, will be available soon; pre-orders are available at now. The details for each product are listed below:


The iTrip has become synonymous with the iPod since it was first introduced in 2003. Letting listeners send audio wirelessly to their stereos has made the iTrip product family the most popular iPod accessories in the world. The iTrip FM Transmitter has now been reinvented for the PlayStation Portable. Offering a sleek, slim design that slides securely onto the bottom of the PSP quickly and easily, without adding bulk, the iTrip's easy to read display sends audio right to your radio. Rock your game, movies and music through your own home and car systems and you'll never go back to the stock speakers.


The iFM Radio Tuner and Remote Control integrates FM radio tuning and remote control functionality to the PSP, all in a tiny enclosure. It features a large, easy to read LED for FM tuning, a pass-through port for headphones, and a clip for comfortable use. The integrated remote includes essential controls for easy media playback and functionality. Using the single button switch, listeners can enjoy their favorite FM stations or control music right off their PSP.


The SmartShare is a headphone splitter with individual volume controls. It is ideal for watching movies on a PSP as it allows you to share the experience with a friend - perfect for car trips, plane flights, and waiting rooms. Now you can share your audio, not your volume preferences.

Griffin's iTrip and iFM for PSP have a suggested retail price of $49.99 each and the SmartShare retails for $14.99. All will be available wherever PSP products are sold.
