New PS3 models hit FCC, no word on changes

There has been a lot of talk over the last few days about the breach of the PSN that took the PS3 network down and left players unable to play anything online. Even worse than not being able to play any online games is that Sony has finally admitted just about every detail that could have been stolen on the users of the PSN was grabbed. With all the bad stuff about the PS3 being talked about heavily, it's cool to see something that may be good surface from Sony.

A couple new models of PS3 have landed at the FCC. There are no real hard details for us to go on so the changes, if any, are unknown at this point. The new models numbers include CECH-3001A and CECH-3001B. The difference between the two is the size of the HDD for storing data and content. What we do know is that the original PS3 and PS3 Slim had CECH-2xxx model numbers.

So what might these new models feature? We have no idea. We do know that they both have Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11 b/g WiFi. Could these perhaps be somehow changed internally to render the hack from GeoHot and his ilk moot? Could we simply be looking at new models with larger HDDs? We won't know until more details surface.
