The recorder includes a 160 gigabyte hard-disk drive, able to record 15 hours of high-definition TV or up to 100 hours of standard quality programs, with a possible expansion to 320 gigabytes. Sony will also offer a service, for a fee, that lets users set the machine from a cell phone to record a TV program. The PVR and service will be rolled out in Japan first.

I also found this Flash movie on Sony Japans website. Its in japanese, but I think its interesting anyway.

Well I am a generally a big fan of Sony, I worry about them also being a content provider. I think the PVR is going to follow the direction of their MP3 players and incorporate all kinds of nasty copy protection/use restriction technology. The unit might not have it at now, but at some point in the future; whammo a firmware upgrade and the borg take control:(
