    [Playstation Vita] The PlayStation Vita specifications are pretty tasty

    The PSP's replacement has a five-inch, 16 million colour 960x544 OLED touchscreen, twin cameras, twin speakers, two turntables and a microphone. We're lying about the turntables.

    You also get twin analogue sticks and a ridiculously powerful quad-core processor based on the ARM Cortex A9, the same kind of processor you'll find in many top-end tablets. Expect four to five hours of battery life.

    The PlayStation Vita specs include a touch-sensitive back

    The PS Vita has a touch-sensitive back so you can control the on-screen action without hiding it behind your fingers. The screen's multi-touch too. The combination of a touchy front and back is fascinating - Sony talks about it enabling "touch, grab, trace, push and pull hand movements."

    Samsung might be making the PS Vita's processor

    Sony's new PS Vita will reportedly be powered by a Samsung manufactured CPU, according to Japanese trade newspaper Semiconductor Industry News.

    The new CPU for Sony's latest handheld will apparently be made using a 45 nanometre process.

    The PlayStation Vita specs include POWERVR graphics

    The PS Vita doesn't just have that nifty quad-core processor: it's got a quad-core PowerVR graphics processor too. We can summarise its spec in one word: mighty.

    The PlayStation Vita specifications include GPS

    Sony promises that the Vita's built-in GPS will mean some interesting location-aware games via the PlayStation Network, and an application called Near will let you know if your friends are, you've guessed it, near you.

    The Vita also includes a three-axis gyroscope, three-axis accelerometer and three-axis electronic compass for handheld-waggling motion-controlled tomfoolery.

    The PS Vita may double as a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 controller

    Sony Computer Entertainment Europe R&D manager Phil Rogers told delegates at the recent Develop conference that gamers would be able to use the PS Vita to "drive a display from a PS3 game, for example."

    "PS3 can send data down to Vita and Vita can display it. You could use the unique features gyroscope, touch front and back as a control device for a PS3 game," the Sony exec added.

    The PlayStation Vita does things with rabbit ears

    From the Sony press release: 'by having both Wi-Fi and 3G network connectivity, together with various applications, PS Vita will enable infinite possibilities for users to "encounter," "connect," "discover," "share" and "play" with friends wherever they are.' That "sounds" quite "good", doesn't "it"?
