Sony's Next PSP is NGP : Next Generation PlayStation Portable

As rumors of a PlayStation phone continue to go round, Sony has announced its next PSP: NExt Generation. Codenamed NGP, this playstaion revolves around 5 concepts: Revolutionary User Interface, social connectivity, location based entertainment, converging real and virtual reality.

The specifics are pretty cool. 5-inch touchscreen with 960 X 544 resolution, 2 analog sticks, 3G, WiFi, GPS, a touchpad at the back, motion sensing like on the playstation move and cameras on the front and back.

The games for this device will come on 'new media' and not UMD so we're thinking paid downloads. Sony unveiled this at its event recently. They also say the console has a new UI called LiveArea, with a bunch of vertically scrollable home screens and built-in social networking. Its also got a bit of multi tasking so you can jump between games and the LiveArea without losing progress.
