We have been waiting for quite a long time now, expecting the new update, but now sources are claiming that the update has been delayed for a day. The firmware update will be released on the 20th in America and on the 21st in Europe. There is a lot of confusion (we kinda contributed to it) relating to this update now because some sources state that the update is already out in North America and Japan (GamerSyndrome) while others claim that it has been delayed for a day (UberGizmo). None of the update servers suggest anything, neither the Vita Update Alarm, nor does Sony’s official site suggest it so, chances are that it is just a big confusion.
But, what we do know is that a bit more information has been released by Sony about the web browser, the web browser can now be run while playing a game, unlike before, now you don’t have to quit the game to surf the web. The browser is being called a ‘small app’
Yoshida himself just says that he does not know the exact time when it will be released and has not clearly detailed the day. He seems to be more busy promoting this new ability to multi-task.

Turns out that Sony finally decided to give us some information about the update. Based on this, the update will be released at 9pm PST or 5:00 am GMT (Thanks to Blaze for the information!)
