Here are some highlights:

  • 16GB NAND flash chips replace the original PSP's UMD drive (goodbye UMD ...).
  • Sony still uses an outdated 802.11b chip for wireless internet connectivity. I really can't understand why this is the case. This is a major let-down.
  • The 930 mAh battery is user replaceable! All that stands between you is seven screws and the careful peeling of the Warranty Void sticker. You can get past the Warranty Void sticker by not peeling it back too much ...
