The new Nintendo DS has been unveiled in Japan this week and as expected it has a 3MP camera, a bigger display, enhanced audio functions, an SD memory card slot, a full browser AND It is relatively slimmer than it’s older generations. It will go on-sale in Japan by November 1 and will be distributed in other major markets worldwide sometime early next year.
The buzz about the new Nintendo DS has been here since we’ve been awed by the new Sony PSP rivals. I had the suspicion that it will come back with a vengeance, and I think I’ve hit the nail spot on. Not that I’m some kind of wiz that knows the future, but it just makes business sense to compete with the Sony PSP. I think the new Nintendo DS somehow trumps the some of the features that we all have with our current Sony PSP slims.
The built in camera, for instance is a really cool idea. And the memory card slots… gravy! 🙂
