Gizmodo has info and pics on the Sony PSP and the Nintendo DS. "Here are the final specs of the Playstation Portable, including high-resolution shots of the hardware and all the technical details. Notable are some of the listed accessories, including a 'headphone with remote commander and microphone,' 'USB Camera,' 'USB GPS for PSP,' 'USB Keyboard.' Sony wants this thing to be able to do it all." Also, there seems to be a lot of confusion over whether the Nintendo DS has Bluetooth, WiFi, or both. Otherwise, both systems look great and have a lot of advantages. The Nintendo DS for example can play both GBA and DS games and the PSP is basically a mobile media center. Thankfully, the DS also seems to be backlit and features a touch screen AND standard headphone jack, so my refusal to buy a Gameboy SP seems like it will pay off.
