PSP2 dev kit spotted

Early version of next year's killer handheld slips online

Slider model touted, but design changes expected.

The PSP2 is starting to feel like a dead cert for 2011. And now it’s looking even more likely with the leak of an early dev kit of the new handheld. The model in this snap might not look promising, but this new edition rocks some seriously impressive features.

We’re talking HD screen, a pair of thumb sticks (a feature the PSPgo desperately needed), a dual cameras, a ‘rear trackpad’, plus 360MB of RAM, according to VG247.

That slider design is apparently not the final build, with Sony said to be eschewing the PSPgo style for something more akin to the original PSP. This would make sense seeing as the updated form factor has never really caught on.
