for example, would a 2.66Ghz core i7 be a faster processor than a 2.66Ghz core 2 duo e6750? the answer is yes.
I don't know if i would like a touch screen on the PSP2 would that not make it a little slower or lower the game quality.
the touch screen isn't that bad as long as there are the physical buttons... about the quad-core weeeeell who knows! i mean $ony brought you back in 2005 the most advanced hand-held console at that time, so i guess they're capable of making a powerful psp2.
but I'm not afraid of overheating issues at least $ony has a reputation in this matter,while about battery life i hope they learned their lesson from the original psp!
i'm sure when/if the psp2 is announced at E3 the details will be announced and we won't have to speculate about this anymore.
i found this on thesixthaxis.com:
It appears the internet has broken ranks today on the PSP2, so here’s something the current batch of rumours haven’t picked up yet: we’ve heard from a trusted source that the portable console, due out late this year / early next, will feature a motion sensor set-up similar to that in the iPhone, which will support gestures too.
Alongside the dual cameras (which we can confirm as being in there, as far as we know) the motion sensor will allow the PSP2 to run ‘augmented reality’ software far beyond what we’ve seen with the current PSP. Expect smart use of the cameras and motion sensors from first party studios, with hopefully Layar-style functionality.
Naturally, none of all this can be categorically confirmed, so treat it as a rumour, but if we were you we’d keep at least one eye on E3 next month…
