Nintendo announced a new DS model at their conference. It's called the Nintendo DSi and has a few improvements over the Nintendo DS Lite. One, media support with an SD card reader and two built in cameras. Unfortunately, it does lack a GBA slot. There is also an online store for it in the same vein as the Wii Shop Channel and uses the same currency for DSiWare. Software on it will cost 0, 200, 500 or 800 points. Essentially it is just an improved version of the DS Lite, but with these improvements, it may well be worth getting. It is set for release in Japan on November 1st 2008 with US and EU releases to follow in Early 2009. What do you guys think?

man, i need to start saving for one now. that thing looks uber cool. i don't know about stats, and i need to look into this thing(i can't believe i missed it!) looks like they took the thinks the ds lacked against the psp and put them in. i do see some problems pointed out on other comments but i know some stuff that you don't. i would bet that you can download GBA roms onto the SD card, and or stuff needed for the internet browser and such. but if you are going to get one, i would keep the DSlite since the changes will make the systems pretty different from each other. i need one of these things.

hmmm...... true. i really need to think about this and the new psp
i just found out that the internet browser is built in. as it looks this is a lot cheaper buying a dslite with the internet browser separate.

ok. well does the internet connect to wpa because that's what we use and the ds lite connects to wep
