The device includes a 5″ touchscreen OLED display with 960×544 resolution, dual analog sticks, 3G, WiFi, GPS, a rear-mounted touchpad, accelerometer/gyroscope motion sensing, compass and dual cameras front and back. The most important part of the device from a Windows perspective is that it includes a quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor.

Sony’s ARM chip choice means the next PSP could run Windows 8. Microsoft officials demonstrated an early build of Windows 8 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month. The build, number 6.2.7867, included Microsoft’s new support for ARM chips. Microsoft is partnering with ARM-based manufactures NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Texas Instruments to build support for the processors straight into its next-generation of Windows. ARM support for Windows will allow for greater battery life, new form factors and hardware. Microsoft did not show off any specific devices at CES and most of the hardware on stage was prototype that is used inside Microsoft’s Windows labs.

Thats a stretch with no corroboration…whatever….
