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.
