The device will boast an integrated microphone, video recording and editing facilities and VGA resolutions. It also seems that it will act as a microphone for online play – explaining why Sony has been slow to release a dedicated PS3 Bluetooth headset.
Other features include a bundled video and picture-editing suite called EyeCreate, and the ability to record direction-sensitive sound thanks to the four-microphone array.

• 4 channel audio input: 16 bits/channel, 48kHz, SNR 90db
