Apart from the fact that the device is marked PlayStation, it is currently being called “Next Generation Portable” while it sports a user interface similar to that of the iPhone, controllable via the first ever dual analog control sticks. The device revolves around five key concepts: Revolutionary User Interface, Social Connectivity, Location-based Entertainment, Converging Real and Virtual (augmented) Reality. It will also be compatible with PlayStation Suite as well as being backwards compatible with downloadable PSP games.

The Next Generation Portable will also have 3G, WiFi, GPS, a rear-mounted touchpad, the same accelerometer / gyroscope motion sensing as in the PlayStation Move, an electronic compass, and cameras on both the front and back, making the next generation PSP a device to crave for.

As much as this device attracts potential consumers by its amazing set of features, availability isn’t until this holiday season. Let us see how good the Next Generation Portable performs on the market once it ultimately becomes available.
