What I could find:

  • Quad-core ARM A9 processor, Cortex
  • SGX543MP4+ GPU
  • OLED touchscreen (resolution 960 x 544 pixel, 220ppi – 5inch display)
  • Touchpad (rear)
  • Dual analogue control sticks
  • Digital D-pad and 6 buttons
  • Six-axis motion sensing technology
  • Built-in microphone + speakers
  • Built-in camera
  • Wi-Fi, 3G on 3G model
  • Dimensions: 182.0 x 18.6 x 83.5mm
  • Price: $250 for Wifi, $299 for Wifi/3G

So yeah, pretty awesome specs for a portable, no? Windows 8 supports the ARM CPU as well.

EDIT: This was announced on the E3 convention. So, it's pretty official.

    Six-axis motion sensing exists out of an 3D Gyro, Compass and Accelerometer. Also it has a front and back facing camera where the back facing will mostly be used for AR.

  • Quad core CPU and quad core GPU. It seems impressive!

  • To be honest it is quite weak – phone hardware is accelerating very quickly and sooner or later phone hardware will exceed Vita's capabilities.
