FCC Filings Point Toward PS3 Slim Refreshes

PS3 News reports that Sony has slipped two new PS3 Slim models though the FCC under its old pseudonym Sand Dollar Enterprises. The new models are labeled as the CECH-2101A and CECH-2101B and as far as we know, the only difference between the two is HDD type.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Sony has plans for a specs bump for the PS3 Slim just yet. PS3 News reports that the wireless specs on the "new" PS3 Slims include 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth, identical to the current models. The site goes on to speculate that the filing could just be because Sony found a new manufacturer for some of its wireless components, and was forced to pass the PS3 Slim through the FCC again.

Still, it's nice to dream of an upgrade.
