Nintendo Gets Closer to the iPod

They announced the DSi earlier today at it’s Fall presentation.

From what I’ve been able to gather:

  • It’s 12% thinner
  • It’s $178 (Sorry, Japan only right now)
  • It has a camera
  • It’s not replacing the DS Lite
  • It has an SD slot, but no GBA slot
  • It has internal storage and plays music
  • It has bigger screens
  • It is awesome

My DS Lite is currently going on the fritz. However, it’s too bad this does not look to be released in the States until after Christmas. It would have been the toy of the season. While cool, I think Nintendo is shooting themselves by not releasing it here at the same time.
