Sony PSP2 to keep in touch with 3G
Sony's upcoming handheld games gadget, the PSP 2 has been exposed in a Japanese newspaper, with several specs revealed.
The company is expected to officially divulge details later this week, but thanks to a report by Nikkei, impatient fans no longer need hold their breath.
The story suggests the PSP 2 will feature an OLED touchscreen, significantly improving resolution and offering a range of touch-controlled gaming capabilities. This will be driven by a brand-new processor specifically developed for greater performance power on a handheld console, the paper says.
Last but certainly not least, is the integration of 3G, a significant upgrade from the current PSP, which is limited to Wi-Fi for data downloads. Nikkei said the 3G connection will link up with Japanese network NTT DoCoMo. We'll hopefully hear about the UK equivalent soon.
Further details are expected when Sony officially opens its mouth on the subject at a Tokyo event later this week. ®
3g? so will it be sold like a mobile?
i wonder if it be sold like a mobile phone? with a tarrif and a monthly sub? i hope it either comes with free 3g like the kindle. or the ability to stick any sim in it.
dug out my old psp1000 the other day and played a few missions on ace combat x.
I love it, it's like a gameboy but better (not trying to troll, no offence intended)
won't be getting a new one unless it's truly awesome and becomes very cheap, although if i had cash to burn I'd definitely get one for a bit of fun.
after I'd finished playing ace combat, it looked at it for a bit and thought "this is valuable. it's a device that does stuff" (same kind of thing that occurs to most when they get a new laptop or something) but after thinking about it for a little longer, I wondered what it's use was?
fantastic device, wireless, optical drive, memory card slot, a load of features, online gaming etc... but what does it do other than play games?
I think the original was ahead of its time and even sony themselves were a bit confused about what it was for. It has the capability to do many other things but it is still very centered around the games.
So I put it back in its box and put that back on the shelf of valuable electronic devices that I never do anything with because the application they are intended for isn't important enough to have a device for.
Other geeks must suffer from this too, I'm certain I can't be the only one with a cupboard full of useless devices :)
Does this one have a proper implementation of PKI?
Will it run android? and come with a call plan and be called a Nexus
Am I the only one who thinks those specs could equally be for any of the latest android phones?
