PSP Go has system features current model PSP's won't have

Sony's PlayStation.Blog.Europe recently answered questions from the community on the new PSPgo (PSP-N1000). There were several more details noted on the PSPgo that weren't on the spec sheet or announcement at E3 2009. Here are a few of the noteworthy features as mentioned by Adam Grant, European Product Manager for PSPgo:

Game sleep function:
"You will be able to operate the XMB™ (XrossMediaBar) while suspending the gameplay temporarily." This won't be available for the current PlayStation Portables (PSP-1000, PSP-2000, PSP-3000 models).

Clock and Calendar Application:
You may have seen the Clock application on the PSPgo in Kaz Hirai's hand at the E3 2009 press conference. That is the Clock and Calendar application, which isn't planned for the earlier PSP models either.

On the PSPgo's battery life:
"We have adopted an embedded battery to realise a smaller and lighter PSP system. The battery life is equivalent with the current models meaning approximately 3 to 6 hours for gameplays and approximately 3 to 5 hours for playing back videos."
