Question #3: Where can I get one ?
Well, for #1 in general - no , the HW is quite different. Still a Cell and RSX, but its different. The plus is, the SW is just about the same, which makes it interesting for us.

#2 - That's the hope, but it may be a bit off.

#3 - Try borrowing one from a dev house!
