Sony unveiled the already leaked new Sony PSPgo PSP-N1000 yesterday at the E3 2009.
Sony has now published all the details and photos of the new PSPgo PSP-N1000 console. The major difference in the PSPgo is that the UMD drive is gone and replaced by 16GB internal flash memory. This means you need to get your games and media online.
Features of the PSP-N1000 include 3.8 inches (16:9) TFT with 480 x 272 pixel, Stereo speakers, microphone, slide-out controls, Wi-fi (still just 802.11b), Bluetooth 2.0, M2 slot, USB, 16GB Flash,
Measurements of the PSPgo are 128 x 16.5 x 69 mm and the weight is 158g / 5.6 oz.
The sliding panel of the PSPgo gives you access to games and media with the familiar button control as PSP-3000; when closed, original applications for PSPgo, such as a clock and calendar, are displayed on the screen. You can also enjoy video and music when the panel is closed.
The PSPgo will be available in Piano Black and Pearl White (not all markets).
The Sony PSPgo will become available in stores on October 1, 2009, in North America, Europe/ PAL territories and Asian countries and regions at a recommended retail price (RRP) of US$249 and €249, and on November 1, 2009, in Japan at a RRP of 26,800 yen (including tax).
Sony also announced a new Cradle (PSP-N340) for the PSPgo that will become available in stores worldwide concurrently with the release of PSPgo. This new Cradle enables you to charge the PSPgo battery and also enjoy watching video and listening to music. Also included in the peripheral line-up are video-out port cables that enable you to enjoy games and videos on your TVs at home.
