According to industry sources, Sony might be showing off a slimmer version of its PlayStation 3 console at E3 2009 in June. This falls right in line with “Sir Howard Stringer’s recent comments about the system being too expensive — a trimmed-up redesign is right on schedule with those smaller Cell and RSX chips.”

On the other hand, after all this speculation and hype it would be a total Sony move to just pump out the same machine in a different color with maybe a new pack-in game, so we’re not holding our breath.
