Nintendo Reveals the Nintendo DSi
The rumored Nintendo DS Lite successor has finally been announced. Speaking at the Nintendo Media Summit, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has revealed the Nintendo DSi. Here are the features according to our big brother DS Fanboy:
Overall size has been reduced -- DSi is 12% or 2.6 millimeters slimmer than the Lite. Comes with an external 0.3 Megapixel camera (for 640 x 480 pixel pictures) and a VGA camera located on the hinge, directed towards the user. You'll be able to edit pictures using the touchscreen. Full music playback functionality, including adjustable pitch and playback speed. Both screens have been expanded to 3.25 inches. SD memory card slot is included, and there'll be on-board memory also. Will ship with an built-in Nintendo DS web browser. DSi will allow users to download games from DSWare, a new service that operates with Wii Points -- or, as they are now known, Nintendo Points. Logging onto DSWare for the first time will grant users 1,000 free Nintendo Points. DSWare comes in four pricing categories: free (!), 200 Nintendo Points, 500 Nintendo Points, and 800 Nintendo Points. Will come in lovely matte white and matte black. Begone, foul fingerprints that have taunted us so! And finally, it launches on November 1st in Japan, and will cost ¥18,900, or roughly $179. Check out the official site at the "Source" link below!
I hope Nintendo changes the external camera's resolution to atleast 2 or 3 megapixels and add a xenon flash. Wishful thinking. :)
