Ah, right. Still, will be interesting to see how much will be writeable in the end.

At least the NGP has almost doube the PPI of the original PSP, and that still holds up pretty well today if you ask me. So the NGP, being right inbetween retina and PSP, should be pretty crisp and has the big advantage of having more screen real-estate, which I think is more valuable. I still way prefer my PSP's screen over my iPhone 3GS' screen, though a bit less ghosting wouldn't hurt . Looking at the off screen videos, the viewing angle on the NGP looks pretty great by the way.

Yeah agreed, the res is more than fine for the unit. I think the PPI in Iphone 4 is bit of an overkill and the NGP res is probably at the sweet spot.

They're different in form factor from a memory stick or any other flash media standard. It's unclear if NGP will also ship with SD or Memory Card slots for additional storage, if there is built in flash storage or if you'll have to buy large, blank versions of these new carts for downloads, movies, music, etc.
Every NGP will have 2 memory slots, one for game cart and one for storage. One rumor said that cheaper NGP model will not have internal storage, but we will find about that in:

I am testing with HiDPI. Makes a lot of difference in text reading. Not so sure about gaming impact yet but I suspect it would be beautiful.

Earlier builds had no AA apparently, and is now at 2xMSAA right now (at least according to this bloke, but I don't know... http://twitter.com/#!/guabho/status/76356980033339394).
