Rumor: Imagination Technologies, Sony team up for PSP successor

While it's not rumor that Britain-based Imagination Technologies has signed a license agreement with an undisclosed new partner, it is a rumor that this unnamed company happens to be Sony Corp. Despite a press release from Imagination Technologies only calling it "a major international consumer electronics company," EETimes is reporting that Sony will use Imagination's PowerVR SGX graphics processor -- specifically the as yet announced SGX55x core -- for a "PSP2" in the future. It's interesting to note that Imagination's PowerVR tech has already been implemented in Apple iPhones. What could this mean if it is indeed true?
