The PSP2 will have support for a 3G network connection, but won't be able to make phone calls.
That's according to Nikkei (via Andriasang) who says the new console will be supported by a 3G service provided by NTT DoCoMo in Japan - the country's largest mobile carrier.
This will give the system an always-on connection for online gaming and downloading games and movies, but it will not be a phone.
It's also reported that the system will have Wireless LAN features for when the player is within reach of a zippier WiFi outlet, but the 3G will offer a more permanent internet connection - rather like iPad. The paper makes no mention of subscription fees or pricing details.
The paper also says the machine will have an OLED screen, and a new processor developed especially for the new console that will handle 'high resolution visuals'.
These details come just ahead of a reported event later this week called the 'PlayStation Meeting' where, according multiple reports, Sony is set to finally reveal the PSP2.
