Storage comes in quite low at 32GB, but can be expanded with microSDXC or microSDHC cards. The processor is a custom tegra powered by NVIDIA, another expected rumor confirmed. The dock has 2 USB ports, and allows charging of accessories. In terms of wireless capabilities, it can connect with up to 8 other consoles via local play, and also offers online play. You can also connect to the internet docked with a LAN adapter if you choose so.
