New PSP specs revealed

The specifications for the new PSP have found their way onto the internet, and it’s generally good news if you’re planning to buy one. Not only will the new version feature a video-out port, but it will have twice as much RAM as the original (64MB compared to 32MB), it can be charged via USB, it uses a 1200mAh battery (compared to 1600mAh on the original but apparently it lasts just as long), it has a WLAN switch on the top and is based on a TA-085 PCB (which apparently is good for homebrew applications). The downsides are that you can’t use the original PSP remote with the new model and the AV cable is sold separately. So to sum up, the new PSP will be smaller and quicker.

I never new the PSP had 32mb of RAM, I knew that it had 4MB of Flash but not 32MB of RAM. Anyways the PSP "lite" also has a wider UMD hatch for which to better access the UMD(cough,MotherBoard) as well as a faster spinning drive for less load time(some what loud, so I hear).

Sweet. Will it come in at the same price of the current PSP with all the price cuts?

Why couldnt they come up with the USB CHARGER idea before the PSP was ever released???? If most mobile fones & MP3 players can be charged by USB then why not the PSP???

also maybe they can throw in an alarm clock feature. god knows I really need one!
