The official specs have been released at http://playstation.com/products.html (to scroll you have to drag the arrows, not click them). Sorry to disappoint everyone who wants to continue the "PS3 with 2 SKUs=No Blu-Ray" chant, but it's definitely included. Since the hard drive is detachable and may be optional (a la the XBox 360), that may be where there was confusion, if the rumormonger wasn't lying outright. Some information hasn't changed much (1080p-capable HDMIx2, SACD and DualDisc playback), there's no definitive word on audio codecs (it says "Dolby 5.1ch, DTS, LPCM, etc. (Cell-base processing)"), it can read PS3 BD-ROM as well as regular BD-ROM and BD-R/E, and it includes 800.11g wireless (for using the PSP as a controller, sweet!).
