With the Sony PSP2 expected to be unveiled this Thursday, January 27th, new rumours and reports have seen the upcoming device pegged with an OLED touchscreen display and 3G data capabilities.
Leaked in the reputable and oft-tech accurate Nikkei newspaper in Japan, the long overdue follow-up to the PSP is said to feature a larger display than its predecessor with the mooted OLED offering adding improved image quality and colour depth.
Powering the increased specs of the PSP2 will be a new processor with the portable gaming device adding to its online on the move gaming credentials through the inclusion of 3G network support. Announced as being supplied with 3G connectivity in Japan via the NTT DoCoMo network, it is currently unknown which service providers would support the device here in the UK.
Whilst these speculative specs have whet our appetite ahead on this week’s expected unveiling, it is hard to see how Sony intends to successfully launch both the PSP2 and widely tipped PSP Phone within a month of each other.
