We've all seen this new piece of meat, but here are some questions for it.

1. How will the memory work on it?
2. It is said to have half of the PS3's power, what is this level at, the Gamecube or PS2 or what?
3. Is the screen and body still a fingerprint magnet or did they fix it kinda like what Nintendo did with the 3DS
4. Is it a good idea to get this or should we expect a new PSP in a year or so?
Thanks

1. We dont know yet, probably proprietary Sony cards like last gen
2. Those kind of comparisons are mostly useless. If you saw Uncharted it looks almost as good as a PS3. Its got a quad core Arm and doubtless a beefy GPU.
3. hopefully not
4. it IS the new PSP. Wont be out till maybe even early next year, theyve only committed to "at least one territory" in 2011.

1. It will probably use the Pro Duo cards, maybe SD cards along with memory built into the system. It doesn't use UMD anymore but flash cards like the DS with 2-4GB of storage each.
2. Half the power of a PS3 is not a PS2 or a gamecube. It's much more impressive than that. A PSP is close to the power of a PS2, this is supposed to be 4x more powerful.
3. It may still be one especially cause its a touchscreen now.
4. It may not be called a PSP, but its coming out at the end of this year to Japan at least.

No it's like the successor to the PSP. 5 inch OLED touchscreen, touchpad on the back, two analog sticks, motion controls. 4x as powerful as the PSP

So could it play Zelda Wind Waker :D?
And how many megapixels is the camera?

No, this is Sony, not Nintendo.
I don't think they specified how many megapixels the camera is.

definitely going to be higher than the 3DS's, what, VGA?

In any case Im sure any random smartphone would produce better quality pics than the NGP.
