    I have a phat. 3.9m33

    1 battery that came with it. Not pandora-ized.

    I see the advertising for the new unit says faster load times, etc...for the slim. I will prolly never use Skype.

    Will games ever perform better? Frame rates? I hear oblivion is coming.

    Thanks.

    The Slim just brings Skype, the TV output, and faster UMD loading. When it comes to the homebrew aspect, it's no greater than the Phat PSP.

    I picked one up yesterday. At first, I was pretty bummed, as the Slims feel soooooooooooooooooooooooo much cheaper than the phats (feels like it dropped 20 pounds). Just seemed like a ripoff - or a downgrade. However, after using it for a day - I love it. My opinion has completely changed to be honest. Yeah, still feels kinda cheap, but it feels more like a gaming device should I guess. The load times are better. Haven't had a chance to try out the video output, as you have to buy one of their silly cables:) Skype is pretty cool, however.

    That is exactly how I feel! :mrgreenthumbsup: Picked mine up a couple of days ago.
    But now it's kind of nice that it is "Lite" when you have it as a music player in you jacket

    Idiots... Lighter is better last I checked, plus 200% life via old Extended Battery. And if you're thinking cheaper- look at the price and the features.

    200% live via old extended battery? So you're saying you can get 200% more life on a Slim by using an old Extended Battery?
