It means normal speech. It's the Mandarin word used in China to refer to Mandarin Chinese.

I was in hong kong a year or so watching TV when the announcer told us

"the following program will be broadcast in putongese"

I split my sides laughin (momentarily) then spent several minutes cursin at the tv for being so STUPID.
