PSP2 details leaked – will have 3G support, OLED screen

Japanese newspaper Nikkei has released details on the PSP2, citing that it will have 3G support, wireless LAN, an OLED touch screen, and a new processor for handling high resolution visuals, developed by Sony. The 3G service will not allow for phone calls, but – in Japan – it will allow gamers to connect to the internet via the provider, NTT DoCoMo. Additionally, the so-called “PlayStation Phone” will use Google’s Android OS and button-based controls.

There’s no word yet on pricing, or whether or not the 3G on the PSP2 will have any kind of subscription fee – and, if so, if there will be a Wi-Fi only version made available. According to Andriasang, information about the PSP2 will be given at a press conference on January 27th, and the PlayStation Phone should be unveiled next month.
