PSP Go out in Autumn 2009
Once again Sony made an iteration of their Playstation Portable by making it more "portable". PSP Go was designed to be more compact and no UMD in sight.

Bluetooth support is also added.
The balance of probability suggests Sony intends online distribution of content to the device via its own PlayStation Network, which is exactly what Nintendo is trying with its latest DS iteration.
The most immediately noticeable change is of the course the redesigned slimline form of the case, using a slide-out form factor familiar from mobile phones, and by the looks of it allowed by the removal of the relatively bulky optical drive
