Sony has teased the 2.10 firmware update for the PlayStation Vita, which is coming later today.

Many intriguing features are coming with 2.10, and each new feature is designed to make using the PS Vita much easier and more intuitive, which are:

-Create folders to more easily manage your favorite application icons on the home screen, with up to 10 icons in each folder and a maximum of 100 on the home screen (including icons inside the folders).

-Verify which PS Vita card you are using by looking at the home screen’s info bar. You can also save the layout of your home screen icons in the memory card.

-Added video support allows you to play videos within the browser (memory card required; some videos are not supported).

-New email enhancements allow you to view HTML messages, add multiple email addresses to your contacts, and easily search your messages using the new search feature.

-PlayStation Plus members will be able to automatically update PlayStation Mobile format software and upload game save data onto online storage using 3G connection.

-New “Mute Automatically” option will mute your PS Vita speakers when your headset is unplugged and pause your music when using the music app.

One of the more frustrating issues with the PS Vita menu screen is having to organize all of the game and application icons, but Sony took a note from the mobile phone OS's Android and Apple so users can better manage home screens.

We will keep you informed as to when you can begin downloading this feature-heavy update later today.
