Nintendo Launches Dual Touchscreen DS With 3MP Camera, Calls It DSi
As the rumors suspected, two of them in fact, Nintendo unveiled a dual touchscreen DS with a built-in 3 megapixel external camera in addition to an internal camera, which is probably a lower rez. No word on the MP3 part of the rumor, but seems likely considering the new feature set. Called the DSi, it’s 12% thinner than the current DS, does away with the GBA cartridge slot, and features larger touchscreens (that should read two) at 3.25-inch. To complement the new DSi, Nintendo is launching an online store for purchasing content, via Nintendo points, that can be accessed via WiFi.
The new DSi launches in Japan on November 1st for about $178. The US, and the rest of the World will have to wait until next year.
