Unfortunately I wasn't lucky enough to get a PS3, but here are the updates that 1.10 firmware performs (from http://www.us.playstation.com/ps3/network/updates):

The PLAYSTATION®3 system software version 1.10 update includes the following:
You can now use PLAYSTATION®Network services.
You can now use the single tap text entry method on the on-screen keyboard for English and other European languages.
[Audio CD Output Frequency] has been added as a feature under [Music Settings].
[Enable ATRAC] has been added as a feature under [System Settings].
[Cross Color Reduction Filter] has been added as a feature under [Display Settings].
[After 5 Minutes] has been added as an option to [Screensaver] under [Display Settings].
You can now select [Full Screen] under [Screen Mode] when playing video files saved on the hard disk or storage media.*
*An appropriate USB adaptor (not included) is required to use storage media with some models.
The latest DVD copy-protection compatibility files have been updated.

ARccOS Compatibility

SCEA has discovered that certain DVDs utilizing the ARccOS* copy-protection system may have difficulty being played on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. A software fix for this has been created and can be easily downloaded and installed utilizing the System Update function found through the PS3™ system's Xross Media Bar (XMB™). Users are recommended to update their PS3™ system to system software version 1.10 available for download on November 17. Also, regular update of PS3™ system's operating system using the System Update is recommended for future additional functionality. The situation with the ARccOS copy-protection system occurs only with DVDs and does not affect the playback of Blu-ray Discs.

*ARccOS is a copy-protection system developed by Sony used on some DVDs. For further inquiry on this system, please contact Sony Corp.

You can now download and save music and video files on the hard disk under [Internet Browser].
You can now download the following types of content under [PLAYSTATION®Store].
− PLAYSTATION®3 format software
− PLAYSTATION®Network titles*
* The term "PLAYSTATION®Network titles" refers to PlayStation format games (PS one) downloaded from PLAYSTATION®Store and PSP format games distributed electronically.
Simplified and traditional Chinese characters can now be displayed under [Internet Browser].
[Online Instruction Manuals] has been added as a feature.
The method of calculating hard disk capacity has been changed.
* Free space on the hard disk is calculated as 1 GB (1024 x 1024 x 1024) = approx. 1,073,740,000 bytes. As a result, the free space value displayed may be less than the value that is mentioned under specifications in the product documentation. You can check hard disk free space under [Settings] > [System Settings] > [System Information].
Playability status with the PS3™ system has changed for some PlayStation® and PlayStation®2 format titles. To check on the latest status, visit the search site for compatible titles.
