P5500 aka HTC Nike
codename Cobalt, sounds just like the bad title of an old movie and, frankly, the appearance that was recently made for the platform is not a very impressive one. It’s just like a train car. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not ugly or anything but if it does become a reality, it is going to have to compete with Nintendo’s DS which, in my opinion, looks a little more sexy. Detailed information about the new PSP2’s specs is listed below: • All Metal & Ruggedized Rubber Build; • 200% Brighter Screen; • Dual Analog Controllers; • Visual Battery Display; • 8GB Flash Drive; • Wifi (a,b,g); • Bluetooth V.2 (A2DP, AVRCP); • Firmware 4.07. Now, the specs speak for themselves, no arguments on that, but where do they come from? Not having a specified source, we can only guess that the PSP2 is nothing but a scam or mockery, surely made by someone with too much free time on his/her hands and a good imagination which could probably be put to better use.
