This morning, Sony released a preview video and details for the next major firmware release for the PlayStation Vita—one which will bring PS+ support, email, an improved content manager, and more.

PS Vita Firmware v2.00 will hit on Monday, November 19th, and will bring with it the following new features and updates:

PlayStation Plus
Offers free and reduced-price games and content to subscribers, and includes  features such as 1GB of online back-up storage and automatic updates that PS3 owners have already been enjoying.

Email Client
Natively supports Gmail and Yahoo Mail, but can also support other services via manual information input.

Content Manager
Interface has been updated, and the options for syncing are now PS3, PC, and Online. Vita can now also sync wirelessly.

Video Playback
1080p videos can now be played on the Vita, so long as the video format is of the type the Vita will support. Closed captioning is now also available for video files which offer captions.

Web Browser
Overall browser has been improved, and aspects like HTML5 and Java rendering can now make better use of the Vita’s GPU to provide for smoother website browsing. Also, the currently-active URL can now be tweeted directly from the browser.
