I was just sent some updated information on the Datel 4GB hard drive that we talked about in last week’s podcast. It looks like it will be a 2 piece set, one being the HD itself and one being the X2 battery. There have been some rumours flying around on how this interesting device would connect to the PSP, so hopefully this will dispel those rumours. I’ve included some images below for your viewing pleasure.
This device is still scheduled to be released late this month and will run you about £150 ($265 USD). Not cheap by any means, but way cheaper then buying 4x1GB memory sticks.
Connection / fitting to PSP
The 4Gb Hard Drive fixes tightly and firmly into 2 holes at rear / back of PSP on Right by memory slot compartment. A very small cable connects from side of hard drive into memory slot.
Once attached, the 4GB Hard Drive forms an ergonomic addition to your PSP, sitting comfortably in your hands especially when used in conjunction with the X-2 Battery. As such you should consider the Hard Drive to be a permanent attachment on your PSP, thus maximising the working life of the unit and ensuring that you always have your content with you.
This device, and the new info about it that I secured, has me quite intrigued. I for one can’t wait to get my hands on one to test it out.
