Well, Nintendo launched their new Nintendo DSi today
Only in Japan currently.. including two cameras. slightly larger screens, and improved audio. SD slot and online 'shop' to buy useless stuff.
Not impressed at all. Looks like a pitiful attempt at 'me too' to be in the digital lifestyle world. People aren't going to use their DS to take adhoc photos.. they already have a cell phone for that. The only thing it could be good for is head to head gaming, but that has been tried before without much take-up.
Only Japan for now...
Nintendo announces DSi with SD slot, "DSi Shop" content store [update] - EngadgetAs expected, Nintendo has announced the new DSi at its Fall presentation in Japan. The device features a dual touchscreen layout almost identical to the DS Lite, though the company is calling it a "third platform," which means it's complementing the existing system, not necessarily replacing it. Looks-wise there's not much different happening, but it's some 12 percent thinner -- partly because it omits the GBA cartridge slot. The touchscreens are slightly larger, at 3.25 inches apiece, and there's an external three megapixel camera as well as a front-facing camera located on the inside hinge. The DSi has an SD slot and internal storage -- we're not sure how much at the moment -- but photos can be taken directly to the Wii Photo Channel on the card. Nintendo's also launching an online "DSi Shop," which will sell content directly over WiFi, including a free browser app and "DS Ware" game -- and the company will offer free wireless connectivity at "Nintendo Zone" hotspots located in Japanese McDonalds. The shop will take the newly-renamed Nintendo Points (formerly Wii Points), 1000 of which will come free with the handheld until March 2010, and content will be priced in 200 / 500 / 800 point brackets. The DSi will come in white or black finishes, and will cost ¥18,900 ($178) when it launches in Japan on November 1st -- the rest of us will have to wait until next year.
